An experimental and theoretical study of a “multi-stage torsion spring” is presented. The spring is designed for high torsion (25 kg-m), considerable angular displacement (±20 deg), space limitations, considerable service life, linearity, and hysteresis restrictions. Theoretical and experimental data are found to be in very close agreement.
