Abstract

Leaf spring is widely used suspension components, especially in commercial vehicles. Most of the vehicles in the Indian market are overdesigned. This is for the type of usage and road conditions or simply to increase factor of safety and prolong product life.The present paper is the vibration response using the default metal (Steel) leaf springs and then by replacing it with glass fiber springs. A variety of excitation frequencies were used to assess the change in the vibrationresponse. Researches have been made to present experimentation of composite mono leaf spring & steel leaf spring for vibration and compare its results.Experimentation is carried out using FFT (Fast Fourier Transform) analyzer dynamic analysis. From the study, it is seen there is also significant increase in zeta value of composite spring as compared to steel spring. With increased vibration damping rations offer superior ride comfort.
