What is the purpose of the valve spring?

The purpose of the valve spring is to close the valve when the cam has finished pushing it open to allow fuel/air in or exhaust gases out. The spring is held in place at the top of the valve by a split-collet, like 2 halves of a cone, and also sits against the outside of the cylinder head. The spring is compressed when the cam on the cam shaft pushes it down, and as the cam moves away, the spring forces the valve shut again.

On a big rig where is the SR-1 spring brake valve located?

I think you mean QR-1 valve, and you're not guaranteed to have that. You could have a QR-1, QR-1, or an R14 relay valve. It's usually mounted high and near the center. Go under the truck, follow the lines from the emergency chamber of the brake chamber up - the valve they both connect to will be the metering valve for the spring brakes. A QR-1 valve will have three air lines attached to it, a QR-1C will have four, an R14 relay valve will have at least five.
