Abstract: Leaf spring is one of the oldest suspension components and they are still frequently used in commercial vehicles. Weight reduction is most effective way of improving fuel economy without losing the performance of vehicles. So the Automobile Industry has shown interest in overall weight reduction of vehicle by the replacement of steel leaf spring with composite leaf spring since the composite material has a high strength to weight ratio, good corrosion resistance, more elastic strain energy storage capacity. The main objectives of this work is to compare the stress, deflection, stiffness and weight savings of composite leaf spring with that of steel leaf spring and an attempt to design a hybrid leaf spring in order to obtain qualitative spring at affordable mid- range of cost. In this research work standard existing multi leaf spring is modeled in CATIAV5 and analysis is carried out by using ANSYS (Workbench 16.0) software. A comparative study has been made between different composite (E-Glass/Epoxy, Carbon Epoxy, Graphite Epoxy, etc.) multi-leaf spring, steel multi-leaf spring and mono composite leaf spring with respect to stress, deformation and weight to find out the best material that have minimum weight and stress for same load carrying capacity.Theoretical and software based results are presented and compared for validation. Finally referring to the results obtained in these research studies, the present work proposes a new idea regarding the construction of hybrid leaf spring which is the combination of steel and composite material leaves based on practical applications and cost analysis.
Keywords: leaf spring, composite material, hybrid leaf spring, static analysis, CatiaV5, Ansys etc.
