Helical spring, compression spring, English Elbow spring, Leaf spring and many more.

Are you looking for design of springs or only general information?

if u go for type of application of force then mainly three types- Compression spring, Tension sprng & torsion.
These are the basic types and according to applications and other constraints the springs are also given different names.

the general types are coil and leaf springs

under coil springs you have compressin , tension and torsional

there is also another class called belleville and plate springs.

however the types of springs varies from application to application. compression springs can also have a taper or conical profile.
