Application of leaf spring in construction industry

Application of leaf spring in construction industry

The application of leaf spring in the automobile industry and the application in machinery has been widely known, but its application in the construction industry has not yet been paid attention to.

In October 1999, Professor Xu Guobin of Beijing Jiaotong University explained to the French ADP company for the first time in the design of the Guangzhou New Gymnasium (the project of the Ninth National Games) that the national patent product developed by them “universal bearing, universal rotation, seismic reduction Vibration-elastic spherical steel bearing” can solve the insurmountable design problem in the roof design of this project[1], develop their third-generation bearing products, and push the application of leaf springs to the construction market at the same time. Beijing Shougang Hongye Steel Plant completed the design and manufacturing of the leaf spring.

1. Raising the problem

2. Basic requirements, design process and difficulty analysis of leaf spring

3. Improvement of design and manufacturing process

Fourth, the future direction of efforts

About the Author

Wang Jun is currently the chief engineer of the leaf spring branch of Beijing Shougang Hongye Steel Plant and a senior engineer of metal materials and heat treatment. Currently a member of the National Spring Standardization Technical Committee.


From January 1979 to January 1983, Bachelor of Engineering, majoring in metal materials and heat treatment at the First Branch of Beijing University of Iron and Steel;

In March 1983, he was assigned to Shougang Hongye Steel Plant, mainly engaged in product development and daily process management of automobile leaf springs;

In 1989, he served as Deputy Chief of the Technical Development Section of Shougang Hongye Steel Plant;

In 1990, he served as the chief of the technical development section of Hongye Spring Plant of Shougang Machinery Corporation;

In 1992, he served as deputy director of the Leaf Spring Research Institute of Shougang Hongye Spring Plant.

From 1993 to 1998, he worked on the development of new leaf spring products in the technical department of Shougang Hongye Steel Plant.

From October 1998 to now, he is the chief engineer (chief engineer) of the leaf spring branch of Shougang Hongye Steel Plant. Undertake the review work of new product development of leaf spring and related new product development and scientific research work.

Performance resume

During the “Sixth Five-Year Plan” period, he participated in the research and development of 28MnSiB new low-carbon spring steel, and at the same time participated in the research and development of the changeable plate spring. The National Science and Technology Commission and the Ministry of Metallurgy issued a major achievement award.

Since 1984, we have conducted technical negotiations with foreign companies for many times, designed and developed a variety of export leaf springs, and exported them to the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom in large quantities, and achieved good economic benefits. At the same time, due to long-term work on the front line of production, we have accumulated a lot of experience in handling problems on site. It has been awarded many times by the relevant departments of Shougang Corporation for foreign exchange earning.

From 1998 to 1999, because the hardenability test was successfully used before the leaf spring is rolled into a product, a large number of waste products originally caused by poor hardenability of the material were avoided, and the best operator of Shougang Corporation was obtained. Won the third prize for best practices.

In 2000, due to the successful design and development of the leaf springs required for the Guangzhou New Gymnasium (the Ninth National Games project, the closing ceremony was held here), it was awarded the honorary title of economic and technological innovation model by the Beijing Federation of Trade Unions. This type of leaf spring has been used in the construction industry for the first time in the world. It was registered by Xu Guobin, a professor at Northern Jiaotong University (doctoral supervisor, member of the expert group of China Steel Association, director of China Steel Association Space Structure Association, national first-level registration) The structural engineer) proposed that Tongji University put forward the technical parameters, and I completed the entire process from design to production and inspection.
