Gas spring has a wide range of applications and one of the major element is its seal. Nitrile rubber seal is studied in this paper as the failure of seal is due to static and dynamic load conditions. Seal is essential part as it prevents the leakage of gas from cylinder and which is why the spring action is occurred. Main focus of this study is to analyses the failure of gas spring seal and to detect the stresses induced in it. The analysis were carried out by using ANSYS APDL13.1 and observed the effects of stresses induced on seal surface. In this paper studies were carried out by experimental and analytical investigation of Gas spring seal. It was found that the maximum stress occurs at the area of contact between rod outer surface and seal inner diameter, where exactly the seal fails.
