Design of Leaf Spring Shackle Plate in Automobile Vehicle by Using Topological Optimization
An automobile leaf spring suspension shackle is a mechanism which allows the changes in the length of the leaf spring. It is a part of suspension system and helps leaf spring elasticity. The arrangement tends to tensile, shear and static loads. Finite element analysis (FEA) carried out at static conditions with different load conditions with different materials of shackle. Stress, strain and deformation analysis is observed at high stress designs. Solid work model is carried out in the analysis. The analysis is compared with different loading conditions with different materials and observed stress, strain, deformation in overall zones has been studied.
