New Material Research and Application for Few Piece Leaf Spring of Heavy Vehicles


Article Preview

To solve the heavy vehicle leaf spring material issues, developed heavy vehicle leaf spring with a new material. This article focuses on technical solutions and new materials, materials testing trial and material properties, structure and toughening mechanism of tissue material analysis, leaf spring using new materials bench and road tests. The test results show that the new material with high strength, high ductility and excellent manufacturability. And fewer leaf spring meet material requirements, such as the high stress, high-performance and high reliability fatigue. The development of leaf spring using new materials has high fatigue properties, and it uses for liberation series replacement truck leaf spring.
