Abstract
Of late, Fiber glass composite mono leaf spring has become the ‘in thing’ in spring design for light weight vehicles. Better strength, stiffness & light weight are the plus points of such mono leaf springs. It has higher strength to weight ratio than multi-leaf springs. In comparison with conventional leaf springs, composite mono leaf spring much lowers stress, higher nature frequency & lower spring weight.
