CAD/CAE System for Shaping Process of Three Dimensional Complicated Surfaces in Electrochemical Machining
The paper presented a computer aided design and engineering (CAD/CAE) system that can be used to simulate and analyse three-dimensional complicated workpiece’s shaping process in electrochemical mahining. In the CAE model the finite element method was applied to analysis the electric-field distribution in inter-electrode gap. Factors affecting the electric-field distribution, such as flow factors and passivating electrolyte, are also taken into account by using database technology. The results of simulation and experiments showed that the system was of high precision.
