The Stress Analysis of Different Circular Saw Structures during Cutting
In this paper, we analyze the stresses around the saw teeth of differently designed circular saw structures. We select a set of critical points around the saw tooth, then we calculate the equivalent stresses of these points and the maximum or minimum stresses of the different saws under different loads and rotational speeds. The saw structure factors that we examine include the diameter of circular saw blades, the depth of the circular saw, the saw tooth rake angel, the saw tooth height and the saw tooth shape. Based on our analytical results, we propose an effective approach to reduce the stress concentration around the saw tooth and thus prevent the saw tooth fracture.
