Leaf springs are one of the oldest forms of springing that is commonly used for the suspension in wheeled vehicles. It is simply adjusted by selecting proper type or number of flat bars. In this study, we are going to show how a mono steel leaf spring can be used as a flexible pipe support in a real situation. It is a cheap and reliable method of support; specifically for the huge pipes in remote areas that maintenance could consider as a big headache. To prove this idea, we will model and test the real situation by using FEA software.
