Design and Analysis of Leaf Spring

Authors(3) :-Saurabh S. Rodge, Tushar P. Patil, Pavan Nikam

We know that the spring plays very essential part of every automobile for suspension point of view. Leaf spring is the main type of suspension system which is used in many light and heavy vehicles. Leaf spring used in many vehicles due to having some main characteristics which are shown below.

  1. Uniformly load distribution
  2. Lower cost
  3. Rough used
  4. Easier in Isolation and Tightly attached with working frame

Today every automobile company has been working on increasing the efficiency with reducing the weight without having any load carrying capacity. In this paper we would like to review some previous research work performed on the leaf spring by previous researchers for increasing the working condition and capacity with load reduction. The paper based on material composition, experimental testing and load (Steady, Dynamic) study etc.
