Paper Title:
Finite Element Simulation of Grinding Stress for a Fiber Optic Connector (Ceramic Ferrule)
  Abstract

Ceramic ferrule that is a major part of the optic connectors requires a high level of precision in a grinding chamfer. After the grinding chamfer, there is a problem in that the subsurface damages cannot be removed. The objective of this study was to analyze the grinding force and the associated stress generated in a ceramic ferrule during cylindrically grinding chamfer using Finite Element Analysis (FEA). A two-dimensional finite element model was constructed with the grinding parameters and the mechanical properties of the ferrule as input variables. The size of the geometric model was the same with the ceramic ferrule. The experimental results achieved by the SEM photograph were compared with those from the FEM. The FEM results were in correlation with those of the experiments.
