A theoretical and experimental investigation of elastic shear stresses and deflection in an axially loaded helical spring having a hollow circular section is reported in this paper. Two analyses are presented: An approximation of the stresses by strength-of-materials theory and a more accurate elasticity-theory solution for stresses and deflection. The results are compared with strain and deflection measurements on an actual tubular spring.
