Abstract A formulation and solution technique using genetic algorithms (GA) for design optimization of composite leaf springs is presented here. The suspension system in an automobile significantly affects the behaviour of vehicle, i.e. vibrational characteristics including ride comfort, directional stability, etc. Leaf springs are commonly used in the suspension system of automobiles and are subjected to millions of varying stress cycles leading to fatigue failure. If the unsprung weight (the… Expand
