Spring Basics-Introduction

Friday, April 11th, 2008

This section will give you some basic information about the 3 major types of springs; compresion springs, extension springs, and torsion springs. Ssprings, what they look like, what their parts are, and how they work will also be noted.

There are three basic types of springs:

Compression springs can be found in ballpoint pens, pogo sticks, and the valve assemblies of gasoline engines. When you put a load on the spring, making it shorter, it pushes back against the load and tries to get back to its original length. The basic definition of a spring is a device that has memory.
Extension springs are found in garage door assemblies, vise-grip pliers, and carburetors. They are attached at both ends, and when the things they are attached to move apart, the spring tries to bring them together again.
Torsion springs can be found on clipboards, underneath swing-down tailgates, and, again, in car engines. The ends of torsion springs are attached to other things, and when those things rotate around the center of the spring, the spring tries to push them back to their original position.

More will be covered in future blogs about how these types of springs.
