Design and Analysis of Composite Leaf Spring
In the present scenario, reducing the weight is the major desire in automobile world. As the conventional steel leaf spring contributes some amount of weight with respect to the total weight of vehicle. So lots of researches are being developed for reduction of weight. This paper deals the reduction of weight in the conventional steel leaf spring with the composite leaf spring. For this purpose various composite materials such as E-glass, epoxy and jute are used in different proportion. This papers also compares the stress, deformation of conventional leaf steel spring with composite leaf spring while loading and unloading, thereby ensuring that the stiffness and efficiency is improved .The three dimensional model are analyzed in CATIA V5R20 and Ansys.
