Jaspreet Singh Bhel we use leaf spring in suspension system in vehicles carry heavy loads

Sreenath Jayaraj We use leaf springs on load carrying vehicles.ie, in goods carriers.leaf springs can bear carry higher amount of load n shock than other type of suspension systems

leaf springs are used in heavy load carrying vehicles.

cars trucks lorry cars etc.

it can balance the truck body on deeps & hilly areas, sudden loads ,

shock loads less maintence cost long life

Leaf spring design is really intricate and it will act as shock absorber in vehicles (Medium -Heavy)

Leaf spring load calculation can be done by applying UTM by fixing the leaf spring in the inverted direction and apply load on bolt area ( The fixing Bolt) we have to take the elongation and the how much or load it is carrying . for each vehicle the disgn will differ . If medum and thin deisng of leaf spring will give good cushioning effect. The camber and CRS of the leaf spring will decide its load carrying charcter ( camber is the distance measured vertically from the center line of The Eyes of the Leaf spring )

In vehicle Empty weight (No load condition) the CRS distance of the spring will be less than the loaded vehicle. suppose the CRS distance of the Front wheel and the rear wheel will differ after loading .The distance elongation will ease the vehicle to accomodate the Axels different location while the vehicle absorbs shock or sudden load.

in simple, load applied on leaf spring is well distributed so failure does not occur.

We can use leaf spring in vehicles like cars, lorries etc which carry heavy goods

It is use in vertical load and make the body in equilibrium.

We can use leaf spring as a suspension system because it can sustain  load equally nd carry more load than any suspension system

Applications

Es un amortiguador en ballesta usado en vehículos tales como camiones , remolques y antiguamente en Land Rovers

hi dinesh what is CRS, in leaf spring.pls explain me.

CRS is an independent coil suspension system designed to give low unsprung weight and premium ride and handling..... @KARTHI KESAVAN...

Coiled Spring Suspension will not spring will lost its elastic capability as subjected to continuous and heavy loading conditions.Leaf spring Over this anomaly in some LCV(Light Commercial Vehicle) and HCV(Heavy Commercial Vehicle), As they are built for the compilation of that particular demand in heavy loading conditions without any problems. Actually their Sprung Load Bearing capacity is higher than ordinary coiled spring suspension.Afterwards They have less maintenance cost

They are Frequently used in

They are used in commercial vehicles

thank you. ..

Leaf spring is used to heavy load carry vehicle such as truck etc it is situated on lower part of vehicle
