Mono Composite Leaf Spring, Glass Fiber Reinforced Composite (GFRC), Ansys14.5


Increasing competition and innovation in automobile sector tends to modify the existing products by new and advanced material products. Conservation of metals is an important issue in these days. A suspension system of vehicle is also an area where these innovations are carried out regularly. Leaf springs are universally accepted suspension components that are being still used widely in automobiles. Weight reduction is also given due importance by automobile manufacturers. The automobile industry has shown keen interest in the use of composite leaf spring in the place of conventional leaf spring due to its high strength to weight ratio. The introduction of composite materials has made it possible to reduce the weight of the leaf spring without any reduction in load carrying capacity and stiffness. The objective of this work is to design and analyze composite leaf spring (Glass Fiber Reinforced Composite),fabrication of GFRC by using hand layup technique, experimental work were done by UTM machine and Static analysis is performed using FEA based software Ansys14.5.
