The deformations that may occur on multi-level parabolic leaf spring systems due to the external effects such as vibration and force should be analyzed before the system designed. In this work, ANSYS based modal and deformation analyzes have been carried out for 10-7 parabolic leaf spring systems designed by using the Stainless Steel, Titanium Alloy and Aluminum Alloy materials. From the deformation analyzes realized under the force values of 1000 N, 3000 N and 5000 N, it was observed that the maximum total deformation values were obtained for Aluminum Alloy material and the relevant deformations were obtained as 2.7620 e-5 m, 8.2861 e-5 m and 1.3810 e-4 m, respectively. In order to analyze the effects of the different materials on the resonance frequencies, the modal analyzes were also realized under the 5000 N force value. The modal analyzes results represent that the resonance frequency value intervals were emerged as [141.3 Hz-515.14 Hz] for Stainless Steel material, [128.66 Hz-471.47 Hz] for Titanium Alloy material and [142.89 Hz-522.97 Hz] for Aluminum Alloy material.
