Water Vapor Cooling Effects in Turning by Finite Element Modeling
In order to correctly analyze the effect of water vapor cooling in metal cutting process, the turning process of AISI 1045 in the water vapor cooling condition is simulated using a commercial finite element software Deform-2D, including geometric modeling, meshing, boundary condition setting and material modeling, etc. The cutting temperature in different cooling conditions are then analyzed and discussed. The experimental validation showed a good agreement with simulation results. Thus, FEM simulation of cutting process can be considered as a promising and reliable tool for machining development within the near future.
