Nonlinear Finite Element Analysis and Experimental Study of Leaf Spring Suspension
By the universal testing machine and special fixture, the leaf spring suspension was tested for deformation, and based on nonlinear finite element theory, the suspension was analyzed. The calculation result is coinciding with test result.The finite element model established could be applied to design calculation and parameter optimization of leaf spring suspension.
