Simulation and Analysis of Abrasive Jet Machining with Wheel Restriction in Grinding
Abrasive jet precision finishing is a new machining method, which injects slurry of abrasive and liquid solvent to grinding zone under without feed condition. The machining is simulated by Finite Element Method (FEM) in the paper. Hydrodynamic pressure on modeling of wedge-like grinding zone between wheel and workpiece on abrasive jet finishing with wheel as restraint was established and simulation, based on Navier-Stokes and continuity equations. The liquid hydrodynamic pressure distributing principle and affecting factor were investigated. The relation hydronamic pressure with grinding wheel velocity was stimulated and verified experimentally. The experiment results show that the simulation results are agreement with experiment, so the simulation model can well forecast hydrodynamic pressure distribution at contact zone.
