The design of composite springs has already been dealt with in several works: Beardmore  or Morris  were dealt with a design composite leaf spring for private cars; Daugherty  was dealt with using a composite leaf spring for trucks; Krall  was dealt with investigation of the dynamic behaviour of the composite leaf springs and Mahdi  and Talib  were dealt with very similar solution with elliptic springs for vehicle suspension.
Design and development of composite elliptic springs
for automotive suspensions.
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
