This study reports the results of an analytical and experimental investigation of helical springs subjected to vibratory motion. Transfer functions are presented for both displacement and transmitted force as outputs with force as the input. Steady-state sinusoidal Magnitude Ratio (displacement—force) and Transmittance Ratio (force—force) are plotted along with substantiating experimental data. It is shown that an actual spring displays frequency response characteristics over most of the frequency spectrum that would render its function useless in many cases.
