A leaf spring is a straightforward type of spring regularly utilized for the suspension as a part of wheeled vehicles initially called a covered or carriage spring, and here and there alluded to as a semi – curved spring or truck spring or level plate. The configuration of leaf spring should be possible in two ways one the mono leaf spring or the multi leaf spring. Mono leaf spring is utilized for the lighter vehicle which comprises of a solitary plate. While in the multi leaf spring a leaf spring can produced using the quantity of leaves called cutting edges. The sharp edges are changing long. The cutting edges are generally given an underlying ebb and flow or cambered so they will have a tendency to fix under the heap. The leaf spring depends on the hypothesis of a light emission quality. The lengthiest edge has eyes on its finishes. This cutting edge is called primary or expert leaf. The remaining cutting edges are called graduated clears out. Every one of the cutting edges is bound together and is mounted on the hub of the vehicle. The whole vehicle load lay on the leaf spring. The front end of the spring is associated with the casing with a straightforward pin joint, while the backside of the spring is associated with a shackle. The shackle is the adaptable connection which interfaces the leaf spring back eye and casing. At the point when the vehicle runs over the projection out and about surface, the wheel climbs, this prompts redirecting the spring. A leaf spring takes the type of a barrel bend formed length of spring steel of rectangular cross- segment. The focal point of the circular segment gives area to the hub, while tie openings are given at either end to joining to the vehicle body. In this paper, survey and static analysis on different leaf spring materials, which are using in automobiles. Static analysis done on different standard load conditions.
