Helical Springs: Specification Check Lists
- Ground Vehicle Standard
Published July 01, 1988 by SAE International in United States
This SAE Recommended Practice furnishes sample forms for helical compression, extension and torsion springs to provide a uniform method for specifying design information. It is not necessary to fill in all the data, but sufficient information must be supplied to fully describe the part and to satisfy the requirements of its application. For detailed information, see 'Design and Application of Helical and Spiral Springs - SAE HS 795 SEP82', also 'Helical Compression and Extension Spring Terminology - SAE J1121 NOV75.' Both of these documents use SI (metric) units in accordance with the provisions of SAE J916 MAY85, and so does SAE J1122. Here, however, the U.S. Customary Units (in, lb, psi) have been added in parentheses after each SI Unit for the convenience of the user who must furnish specifications on a project where all requirements are listed in non-metric terms.

The SAE Coil Spring Sub-Committee is responsible for the review and updating of standards, information reports and recommended practices appropriate to manuals relating to the design and application of coil springs used in the transportation industry. One of our main thrusts is to update the SAE Spring Coil Manual HS-795 with the latest developments in coil spring technology.
* Redlines comparisons are available for those standards listed in the Revision History that contain a radio button. A redline comparison of the current version against a revision is accomplished by selecting the radio button next to the standard and then selecting 'compare'. At this time, Redline versions only exist for some AMS standards. SAE will continue to add redline versioning with ongoing updates to SAE MOBILUS.
