Abstract: Belleville springs consist of a coned disk, resembling a dinner plate without bottom, which has typical load deflection characteristics. Belleville springs versatility lies in the wide range of spring constants without changing the design. While the applications include disk brakes, clutches, shock-load absorbing bolted assembly, there may be a chance to enhance further applications. The main objective of the project is to design a Belleville spring with the mathematical approach, and modeling them using CatiaV5R20 software. Thereafter, Ansys14.5 software is employed in the static structural analysis of these springs by loading them axially. The safe design is obtained by followed design procedure and also simulation results compared with existing analytical results. With the advent of Belleville Springs, there is a chance to open the door of new spring technologies replacing conventional ones.
Key words: Belleville springs, Von-Mises stress, deformation, CatiaV5R20 and Ansys14.5.
