Study on Material Removal Mechanism of Fine-Crystalline ZrO2 Ceramics under Two Dimensional Ultrasonic Grinding


Article Preview

In the paper, the machining characteristics of two dimensional ultrasonic grinding(TDUG) are analyzed, and based on the analysis of the working locus of abrasive particle under TDUG and mechanical performances of fine-crystalline ZrO2 ceramics, a theoretical model of material removal rateMRRis proposed under TDUG with workpiece adhered to ultrasonic vibration respectively from the orthogonal directions. The model shows that any increase of static load, size of grain, work speed, number of effective dynamic abrasive particle, the amplitude and frequency of tool or any decrease of fracture toughness property and hardness will result in the increase of the MRR, and the theoretical model of the MRR is tested, meanwhile the paper draws the conclusion that the surface quality under TDUG is superior to that under common grinding, which is tested by the means of grinding of fine-crystalline ZrO2 ceramics.
