Design and Analysis of a Heavy Vehicle Leaf Spring
International Journal for Research in Applied Science and Engineering Technology
ABSTRACT: Decreasing weight while expanding or keeping up quality of items is getting the chance to be very imperative research issue in this present day world. Composite materials are one of the material families which are pulling in analysts and being arrangements of such issue. In this paper we depict outline and investigation of composite leaf spring. The goal is to think about the stresses and weight sparing of composite leaf spring with that of steel leaf spring. The plan requirement is
... rmness. The Vehicle Industry has awesome enthusiasm for supplanting of steel leaf spring with that of composite leaf spring, since the composite materials has high quality to weight proportion, great consumption resistance. The material chose was glass fibre fortified polymer (E-glass/epoxy), carbon epoxy and graphite epoxy is utilized against regular steel. The outline parameters were chosen and dissected with the goal of limiting weight of the composite leaf spring when contrasted with the steel leaf spring. The leaf spring was displayed in catiav5r20 and the investigation was finished utilizing ANSYS 17.02 programming.
