Abstract: Every two-wheeler has a provision of horn. It is used for maintaining a safe distance or to communicate for safe drive. The horn is critical element in vehicle. It is directly related to safety as well as goodwill of the company. Static analysis determines the safe stress and corresponding pay load of the helical compression spring. The present work attempts to analyze the safe load of the helical compression spring. A typical helical compression spring configuration of two wheeler horn is chosen for study. This work describes static analysis of the helical compression spring is performed using NASTRAN solver and compared with analytical results. The pre processing of the spring model is done by using HYPERMESH software.
