The design of composite springs has already been dealt with in several works: Beardmore [2] or Morris [3] were dealt with a design composite leaf spring for private cars; Daugherty [4] was dealt with using a composite leaf spring for trucks; Krall [5] was dealt with investigation of the dynamic behaviour of the composite leaf springs and Mahdi [6] and Talib [7] were dealt with very similar solution with elliptic springs for vehicle suspension.

Among the topics are multi-functional composite fatigue, developing a benchmark example for predicting delamination fatigue growth, modeling fatigue damage in long-fiber thermoplastics, assessing fatigue limit predictors of graphite/epoxy co-cured composite joints through quasi-static acoustic emission count peaks, and stiffness and fatigue behavior of composite elliptic springs.
