An Overview of Disarray in Finite Element Analysis of Composite Torsion Bar

Authors(3) :-Kumbar R. B., Dr. Sonawane C. R., Pranav N Abhyankar

Torsion bar suspension is commonly used on tracked vehicles, although there are some wheel driven vehicles using this type of suspension. The suspension works by having one end of the bar fixed in position on the vehicle chassis to prevent rotation, whilst the other end is connected to a control arm and wheel hub. The control arm is fixed to the chassis using rubber bushings which allow only vertical movement about the mounting points. The torsion bar is connected to the control arm through a number of splines which translate the vertical movement of the control arm into a rotational or torsional force. This paper tries to give an idea about the previous researches & their finding about study of Torsion Bar, Static analysis (FEA) of torsion bar and study related applications of composite materials.
