Opoz, Tahsin Tecelli and Chen, Xun (2011) Single Grit Grinding Simulation by Using Finite Element Analysis. Advances in Materials and Processing Technologies AMPT2010 International Conference, 1315 (1). pp. 1467-1472.

In this research, basic material removal characteristics in a single grit grinding have been investigated by using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). ABAQUS/Standard is used as a computational environment. The influences of both friction and undeformed chip thickness are considered in the analyses of the grit ploughing, stress distribution and total force variation. Remeshing strategy is performed in the simulation to produce very fine meshes in the contact area to mitigate the material distortion due to large plastic deformation. The results show that the increase of undeformed chip thickness and frictional coefficient would increase ploughing action and grinding stress magnitude. Moreover, friction would cause the stress distribution circle on grit inclined backwards. Finally, FEM analysis can be considered as a strong tool for the single grit simulation of grinding process. ©2010 American Institute of Physics
