Linear Spring Shear Stress

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Fastener

Helical Linear Spring Shear Stress formula

\(\large{ \tau = k_s \; \frac{  8 \; f_a \; D }{ \pi \; d^3 }  }\)  

Where:

\(\large{ \tau }\) (Greek symbol tau) = shear stress

\(\large{ f_a }\) = applied force

\(\large{ D }\) = mean spring coil diameter

\(\large{ \pi }\) = Pi

\(\large{ k_s }\) = spring constant

\(\large{ d }\) = wire diameter
