In this paper an equivalent one-dimensional system for taper leaf springs (similar to those used in vehicle suspension systems) is developed so that results obtained from it are in good agreement with those obtained from the distributed parameter system. Curves which simplify the calculation of the parameters of the equivalent system are also provided.
