Experimental and Numerical Study on Grinding Temperature during Surface Grinding with Different Cooling Methods
Grinding, characterized by its high specific energy consumption, may generate high grinding zone temperature. These can cause thermal damage to the ground surface and poor surface integrity, especially in the grinding of difficult-to-machine materials. In this paper, experimental and fem study on grinding temperature during surface grinding of Ti-6Al-4V with different cooling methods. A comparison between the experimental and numerical results is made. It is indicated that the difference between experimental and numerical results is below 15% and the numerical results can be considered reliable. Grinding temperature can be more effectively reduced with CPMJ than that with cold air jet and flood cooling method.
