Abstract

 In this paper suspension spring of a 160cc 2-wheeler is analyzed and optimized for its performance. For this study the diameter and the material of the coil wire for suspension is changed and its effect is noted. In this study three materials were studied that is ASTM A227 hard drawn spring steel material, carbon fibre Material and titanium alloy. The results were obtained for all of these materials and based on the results it can be said that spring made of carbon fibre material gives the best results. The springs were tested under both static as well as dynamic loading, and in all of the tests Carbon fibre spring proved to be best.
