Numerical Analysis for Thermal Deformation of Workpiece in Cylindrical Plunge Grinding
During the last decades, heat generation in grinding is one of the top concerns because high temperature under fabrication leads to less dimensional accuracy of a workpiece. Several studies with regard to grinding heat have been carried out, focused on micro phenomena of abrasive grains or macro phenomena of thermal deformation in grinding machines. However, these researches have been extensive, schematized information such as thermal deformation, and grinding temperature is indispensable for practical applications. In this study, we combined the simulation model of the plunge grinding process and the numerical analysis method with the differencing technique for the non-steady heat conduction problem, and have constructed the simulation technique for analyzing the heat problem in the workpiece. The simulation results provided information of the heat conduction, and the thermal deformation of the workpiece.
