Predictive Modeling and Investigation on the Formation of Stiff Air-Layer around the Grinding Wheel

Abstract:

Article Preview

In grinding process, a stiff air layer is generated around the wheel periphery due to high surface speed of the porous grinding wheel. This stiff air layer restricts grinding fluid to reach deep inside the grinding zone. The formation of stiff air layer has been studied experimentally by obtaining the variation of air pressure around the wheel periphery under different wheel speeds. With the help of the experimental data, a mathematical model has been developed to predict the pressure of the stiff layer of air under different wheel speed. From the model it is found that at close proximity to the wheel, air pressure obtained is very high, and this establishes quantitatively the formation of stiff air layer around the grinding wheel.
