The present study evaluates the capability of composite leaf spring in automobiles by considering cost effectiveness and strength. Upon introduction of composite mono leaf spring in automobiles, will reduce about 10-20% of the unsprung mass of the vehicle which in turn increases the efficiency. This study uses the E-Glass/Epoxy composite mono leaf spring having constant cross sectional area along its length and optimized geometry for static and dynamic (modal) analysis. Dynamic simulation was also carried out in order to investigate the stability of composite mono leaf spring.
