Grahic Jump Location
Schematic of the setup used for grinding temperature measurement. The imaging system is stationary while the workpiece moves through the area of interest (AOI).
Grahic Jump Location
Calibration curves relating differential intensity (I) to temperature (T). Two replicates are shown as a measure of repeatability of the calibration procedure. The equation of the least-squares polynomial fit of the resultant calibration curve is also given in the figure.
Grahic Jump Location
Differential intensity and temperature fields for constant depth grinding. The workpiece is moving to the right in the figure. Δd is the actual depth of cut or material removed; Δd=16.4 μm: (a) differential intensity; and (b) temperature.
Grahic Jump Location
Line temperature profiles at different depths into the workpiece. The x-axis is parallel to the direction of grinding. Δd=16.4 μm.
Grahic Jump Location
Evolution of workpiece temperature field during a single grinding pass in constant depth grinding. The times shown are from the start of the grinding pass. Δd=16.4 μm. The workpiece is moving to the right in the figure: (a) t=0.10 s from start of grinding; (b) t=0.30 s from start of grinding; and (c) t=0.50 s from start of grinding.
Grahic Jump Location
Variation of maximum temperature (Tmax) with depth into the workpiece for taper and constant depth grinding. The profiles shown for constant depth grinding are derived from Fig. 5 with Tmax being the maximum value of the temperature at a given depth into the workpiece. The profiles correspond to depths of cut of Δd=16.4 μm (constant depth) and Δd=15.7 μm (taper).
Grahic Jump Location
Sequence of workpiece temperature fields from a taper grinding test. Each frame in the sequence is measured at the specific depth of cut noted alongside the frame. Note the significant increase in workpiece temperature with increasing depth of cut. The workpiece is moving to the right in all of the frames: (a) Δd=7.7 μm; (b) Δd=10.8 μm; (c) Δd=13.8 μm; (d) Δd=16.3 μm; (e) Δd=20.0 μm; (f ) Δd=23.1 μm; (g) Δd=26.2 μm; (h) Δd=29.3 μm; and (i) Δd=31.8 μm.
Grahic Jump Location
Variation of maximum temperature with depth into the workpiece for different depths of cut. Each curve in the figure corresponds to a specific depth of cut in the taper grinding test with Tmax being the maximum value of the temperature at a given depth into the workpiece. The profiles shown in the figure are derived from the temperature fields shown in Fig. 7.
Grahic Jump Location
Variation of maximum surface temperature with depth of cut for four replicate taper grinding tests. The smooth curve is a least-squares third-degree polynomial fit of the data. Note the excellent repeatability of the taper grinding test.
Grahic Jump Location
Variation of normal and tangential forces with depth of cut (Δd) in a taper grinding experiment. The data represent a moving average of the measured force data.
