Generally the brake system products are mounted on chassis with brackets which are subjected to dynamic loads due to road undulations. Exhaust brake is used to restrict the engine exhaust flow passage and thereby creates a back pressure in the engine for reducing the engine speed. This in turn reduces the vehicle speed. This is widely used in the vehicles operating in the hilly areas. This product is mounted on the exhaust passage and the air cylinder sub-assembly which actuates the exhaust brake is mounted on a bracket. Automotive industries perform durability tests on vehicles to reduce the failure on end-user environment. An assembly which has cleared the durability test got failed on addition of a spring into the assembly. The inclusion of spring is for enhancing the performance of the overall assembly. This paper deals with investigations carried out using finite element method (FEM) to study the effect of spring under dynamic conditions on the assembly and to propose a design solution for the failure.
