Abstract: Abstract—Helical coil suspensions are used to absorb vibrations as vehicle moves on rough roads. As automobile industry demands for increased fuel efficiency, the designers emphasize on weight reduction of automobile components to the maximum extent possible without much compromise in strength. The current research analyzes the Hero Honda suspension subjected to bumps on roads and causing deformation and stresses on the component. Using Taguchi Response surface optimization, response surface plots and sensitivity plots are generated for stress and strain energy. From the response surface optimization, it is evident that nearly 23% of mass reduction is possible. The CAD modelling and analysis is conducted using ANSYS 18.1 software which is based on Finite Element Analysis and response surface optimization is also conducted on the same platform.
