Abstract

<jats:title>Abstract</jats:title><jats:p>It has been demonstrated in previous studies that local elastomer coatings covering the end coils of helical springs can efficiently reduce the amplitudes of circum-resonant vibrations in such springs. The analysis of the influence that elastic coatings have on the frequencies and modes of natural transverse vibrations of springs is presented in this paper. The concept of the equivalent beam of the Timoshenko type is utilized in calculations of the frequencies and modes of transverse vibrations. The model developed allows users to determine the frequencies and modes of symmetric as well as antisymmetric vibrations of axially loaded springs with elastic coatings of arbitrary length. A comparison of the results obtained using FEM analysis, in which the model represented the actual spring geometry, with the results obtained by means of the presented model indicates its high accuracy.</jats:p>
