Abstract:

Reducing weight while increasing or maintaining strength of products is getting to be highly important research issue in this modern world. Composite materials are one of the material families which are attracting researchers and being solutions of such issue. The Automobile Industry has shown increase interest for replacement of steel leaf spring with that of composite leaf spring, since the composite material has high strength to weight ratio, good corrosion resistance properties. The report describes static analysis of steel leaf spring and composite leaf spring. The objective is to compare the load carrying capacity, stiffness and weight savings of composite leaf spring with that of steel leaf spring. The dimensions of an existing conventional steel leaf spring of a Light design calculations. Static Analysis of model of leaf spring is performed using ANSYS 11.0 The result of FEA is also experimentally verified. The stress induced in the C-glass/Epoxy composite leaf spring is 64% less than that of the steel spring nearly and the deformation induced in the C-glass/Epoxy composite leaf spring is 57% less than that of the steel spring nearly. This study leaves wide scope for future investigations. It can be extended to newer composites using other reinforcing phases and the resulting experimental findings can be similarly analyzed.
