Leaf springs are widely used as suspension mechanical component for cars, trucks, and heavy motor vehicles to absorb the vibrations generated in the vehicle. The performance of the leaf spring mainly depends on the load with standing capabilities of the spring under fluctuating loading conditions and material selection. In this work an attempt is made to alter the material properties of leaf spring and study the performance of leaf spring by using Ansys workbench software against fluctuating loading conditions. The results are compared with the theoretical results under loading condition and the best material for the leaf spring is suggested against fluctuating load for a mini load carrier type of automobile.
