Abstract:In automobile, the suspension leaf spring is one of the potential icons for weight reduction as it accounts for ten to twenty percent of unsprung weight.While reducing weight, the strength has to be maintained by optimising cost. In this paper, the design and analysis is done by replacing material of steel leaf spring by Aluminium Reinforced with Boron Carbideand composite materials like E-glass Epoxy and 50% Kevlar fibre. The objective of the work is to compare deflection, stress,and stiffness of steel leaf spring with that substitute materials. The study aim’s in the rear leaf spring analysis of “MahindraBolero”. Comparative study of leaf spring made by steel and composite materials is tabulated in the paper. CAE Analysis is done in ANSYS.

Keywords: Leaf spring, Static Analysis, Composite materials, Aluminium Reinforced with Boron Carbide, Creo 2.0, ANSYS 14.5
