Experimental Investigation on Conventional Grinding of TC4 and TC11 Using SiC Abrasive
This paper investigates the machinability of TC4 and TC11 in conventional grinding using SiC abrasive. The experiment result indicated that TC11 is more difficult to grind than TC4 because of its higher strength and ductility. Ground surface was in a state of high tensile residual stress to each material, thermal cycling of surface layer had the greatest effect. The ground surface experienced microstructure alteration, a heat-affected zone (HAZ) and plastically deformed layer were observed.
