Answer all the questions (5 x 2=10)
1. Describe the classification of springs.
2. What is free length of helical spring?
3. Define spring rate and spring index.
4. Define the types of weld joints.
5. What is meant by throat thickness
Answer all the questions (2 x 13=36)

6. a) A helical compression spring made of oil tempered carbon steel is subjected to a load which varies
from 400 N to 1000 N. The spring index is 6 and the design factor of safety is 1.25. If the yield stress in
shear is 770 MPa and endurance stress in shear is 350 MPa, find: (i) Size of the spring wire, (ii) Diameter of
the spring, (iii) Number of turns of the spring, and (iv) Free length of the spring. The compression of the
spring at the maximum load is 30 mm. The modulus of rigidity for the spring material may be taken as
80 N/mm2.

b)A safety valve of 60 mm diameter is to blow off at a pressure of 1.2 N/mm2. It is held on
its seat by a close coiled helical spring. The maximum lift of the valve is 10 mm. Design a suitable
compression spring of spring index 5 and providing an initial compression of 35 mm. The
maximum shear stress in the materials of the wire is limited to 500 MPa. The modulus of rigidity
for the spring material is 80 kN/mm2. Calculate: (i) Diameter of the spring wire, (ii) Mean coil
diameter, (iii) Number of active turns (iv) Pitch of the coil. (13)

7. Design a helical compression spring for a maximum load of 1500 N for a deflection of 30 mm
using the valve of spring index as 5. Assume maximum permissible shear stress for spring wire as
420 N/mm2 and Modulus of rigidity 84 kN/mm2 (13)
Answer all the questions (1 x14=14)
8.a) Design a closed coiled helical compression spring for a load range varying from 2.25 kN
to 2.75 kN and corresponding axial deflection of 6 mm. Spring index is 5. Permissible shear
stress is 400 N/mm2 and modulus of rigidity is 80 kN/mm2 (14)

b) Design a knuckle joint to transmit 150 kN. The design stresses may be taken as 75 MPa in tension, 60
MPa in shear and 150 MPa in compression . (14)
