Abstract

In this study analysis of leaf spring using composite is done by comparing the conventional steel leaf spring which is used by Force Motors Trax Cruiser vehicles. The main aim of this paper is to substitute the steel leaf spring with composite material. This analysis results improve strength with reduced weight of existing leaf spring. The composites used for this analysis is Carbon epoxy, Resin epoxy and E glass/epoxy. Combination of alternate leaf of steel with composite is also used for analysis. Ansys workbench is used for analysis purpose. This analysis result Carbon Epoxy best replacing material for existing leaf spring in terms of strength and weight.
