Finite element simulation of grinding process and micro-scale abrasive wear.

By Tahsin Tecelli Opoz and Xun Chen


This paper presents a review of grinding and polishing process in terms of mechanical interaction between\ud process elements. The abrasive processing includes bonded and unbounded abrasive machining can be\ud analysed as a two-body or three-body processing. Finite element simulations from previous works, each with\ud a different simulation approach, covers the analyses in respect of thermal behaviour of grinding, and single\ud grain simulation. Moreover, microscale abrasive material removal in two-body and three-body abrasive\ud process is addressed based upon previously investigation of microscale abrasion tests
