Grinding Surface Creation Simulation Using Finite Element Method and Molecular Dynamics
This paper presents some research results of the application of finite element method and molecular dynamics in the simulation of grinding surface creation. The comparison of these two methods shows that both methods could illustrate the material removal phenomena and provide useful information of grinding mechanics, but they have different feasible application arranges depending on the level of size scales. The investigation demonstrated that rubbing hypothesis of grinding material removal mechanism is valid at all size level even down to nanometre level. Further investigation areas are identified in the paper.
