Study on the Thermal Contact Zone in the Surface Grinding
The present study aims to investigate the temperature field by using the different heat fluxes, such as rectangle heat flux, triangular heat flux, inclined triangular heat flux, circular heat flux. To obtain a reliable figure of temperature field induced by grinding, temperature-dependent properties of work materials were taken into account and a convection model with an effective cooling factor was introduced. A thorough analysis using the finite element method showed that predictions were very agreed with the results of the experiment. Finally, the present paper showed that the contact angle must be taken into account in future models.
