Yu and Kim 5 designed and optimized a double tapered beam for automotive suspension leaf spring. This study demonstrated that composite can be used for leaf spring for light trucks and meet their requirements together with substantial weight saving 4A functional composite leaf spring was. GFRP mono-leaf leaf springs for 7 and 5T front axles with a central thickness over 90mm have been successfully developed and road tested confirming our simulated in-house testing programs.
Therefore the aim of this paper is to present a general study on the analysis design and fabrication of composite springs. Heavy composite constant Prior art date 2005-04-29 Application number NZ56118406A Inventor John Ramsay. Dobinsons design engineers ensure that every spring is designed specifically for the vehicle load height requirements for each application.
They can be manufactured with one or two rigidities depending on the design. With a design composite leaf spring for private cars. A weight reduction of 764 is achieved by using optimized composite leaf spring.
Krall 5 was dealt with investigation of the dynamic behaviour of the composite leaf springs and Mahdi 6 and Talib 7 were dealt with very similar solution with elliptic springs for vehicle suspension. Today leaf springs are still used in heavy commercial vehicles such as vans and trucks SUVs and railway carriages. Spring Manual on design.
