formula to calculate shear stress of the helical linear spring (τ)

Solved Example

The below step by step solved example problem may helpful for users to understand how the input values are being used in such calculations to calculate the shear stress (τ) of the helical mechanical spring.
Example Problem
The helical linear spring having the load F = 100 Newton, mean spring diameter D = 14 mm, wire diameter d = 10 mm & spring constant Ks = 1.35. What is the shear stress of it?
Solution
The given data
load in Newton F = 100 N
mean spring diameter D = 14 mm
wire diameter d = 10 mm
spring constant Ks = 1.35

Step by step calculation
Formula to find τ = Ks(8 x F x D/π x d3)
substitute the values in the above formula
= 1.35 x (8 x 100 x 14/π x 103)
τ = 4.80 Pa
