Numerical Analysis of the Polishing Process of Inner Tube Wall Using Micron-Size Particles in Magnetic Fluids
Distribution and behaviour of micron-size magnetic particles and nonmagnetic particles in magnetic fluids in the polishing process of inner wall of small tube is investigated numerically by using the particle method based on the simplified Stokes dynamics. In this study, it is shown that chain-like clusters of both magnetic particles and those of nonmagnetic abrasive particles are formed between the two magnetic poles. The clusters are strongly held during the polishing process. The clusters of the nonmagnetic abrasive particles are surrounding the clusters of magnetic particles and they are combined with each other.
