Theoretical Analysis and Simulation of Airflow of Super High-Speed Grinding Wheel


Article Preview

The airflow field of super-high speed grinding was analyzed in the paper and the method of computing and analyzing the distribution of the field has been brought forward by applying boundary layer theory. Adopting the method of finite element, the model of airflow field in the 3-D grinding zone has been built up by using software; the solving strategy and the boundary conditions has been defined, where artificial viscosity coefficient in the repetitive and continuous analysis and the method by applying inertia relaxation have been discussed, which helped to revolve stability. The results of simulation was given and analyzed, which can be validated with experiment by using the equipment of PIV (particle image of velocity).
