Today we’ll learn about types of springs utilized in suspension system. Springs that utilized in suspension system are helical spring, leaf spring, Torsion bar etc. Before reading it who’ve missed the post about suspension system read that post At the post I describe need and the working of suspension system. We discussed about the element and we all know that the springs are the main part of suspension system. Usage in Suspension System of spring: We know that any system used to reduce vibration and road shocks. Springs, shock absorber torsion bar etc. Are components of suspension system. Because of irregularity of roads when there runs a car, it feels plenty of because of engine and road irregularity vibration.
So if the vehicle is rigid this vibration transmitted and it’s uncomfortable for the passengers. Therefore the Suspension Springs are used to divide the Wheel of the automobile so when the automobile feel those vibration it move to the spring and the spring begin oscillating without transmitting this vibration. These springs are the main part of suspension systems. We utilized sorts of vehicle according load capability and luxuriousness today. So there are various kinds of spring and suspension systems utilized in those different vehicles. Types of Springs utilized in Suspension System – 1. Leaf Spring: Semi elliptic leaf springs are utilized in all vehicles.
This spring consist of a number of leaves called blades. The blades vary at length and connected together as shown at their figure. These springs based on their theory of beam of uniform strength. This spring is mounted on their axle by their U bolt. The one end of spring is mounted on their frame along with other is connected with a shackle that allows into change at length between eye of spring as soon as the car come across projection of street and upward movement of wheel. When there’s wide range of loading on vehicle, helper spring is also supplied with the leaf spring that increase the weight loading capability of vehicle.
These springs are made by their Chrome Vanadium Steel, Silico Manganese Steel or Carbon Steel as per need. These spring are noisy and doesn’t used where luxuriousness is needed. Helical Spring or Coil Spring: All of us have seen coil springs often times. The helical spring used is suspension method is same as we see. The energy stored per unit volume is nearly double in case of coil spring than their leaf springs. These spring don’t have noise problems, but they doesn’t take torque reaction and side thrust for that alternative arrangement have to be provided. 3.
