Thermal Field Analysis of Single Pulse EDM in Gas
To explore machining properties of the EDM in gas basically, thermal fields of single pulse discharge in gas and liquid were analyzed by FEM software ANSYS. Crater size and thermal strain graph affected by instantaneous high temperature owing to single spark were simulated. They can provide references for optimizing parameters of comparative experiments of single pulse EDM in liquid and gas.
