Paper Title:
Finite Element Analysis of Mechanical Characteristics on the Composite Rubber Suspension of Heavy Vehicle
  Abstract

Taking the composite rubber suspension of a 6×4 heavy vehicle as research object, an accurate finite element model for the composite suspension at loading states is firstly built with consideration of nonlinear contact between spring leaves, and then a new finite element approach for calculating and analyzing static mechanical properties of the composite rubber suspension. Finally, the stress distribution and deformation is analyzed under different loads by using Hypermesh software and the results can be applied to its strength design. And moreover, some primary principles of the composite rubber suspension stiffness and displacement changing with different loads are obtained, which provides reference basis for virtual design and lightweight design of the vehicle composite rubber suspension.
