Abstract: This paper will briefly explain the engineer’s approach to optimize the conservative design of parabolic Leaf Spring in various steps. The Hybrid Design methodology and technique is employed for Size. Shape and weight Optimization by means of Parametric Modeling and Optimization-Simulated annealing algorithm. Various designs have been created, analyzed and its Maximum deflection and stress is compared with the material’s yield strength.
Keywords: Parabolic Leaf Spring, Camber, Computer Aided Engineering (CAE), Parametric Modeling, Simulated Annealing Algorithm, Optimization.
