Simulation Research on Cutting Process of Single Abrasive Grain
Cutting processes of single abrasive grain were simulated respectively by fluid-solid interaction method and Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method. Advantages and disadvantages of the two methods were compared. Smoothed Particle Hydrodynamics method is superior to fluid-solid interaction method in simulating the deformation behavior of workpiece material for the motion of SPH particles. According to the simulation results, it is concluded that workpiece material occurs plastic deformation, flows to the side and front owing to the extrusion of abrasive grain, and finally forms chip in front of abrasive grain.
