    ABSTRACT: As a kind of widely used optical material, optical glass BK7 is machined by first grinding and then polishing in industrial production. However, the polishing process is time-consuming and high-cost. Therefore, it is very meaningful to produce high-quality BK7 workpieces by grinding. To understand the grinding characteristics of BK7, many studies were conducted and reported. But most studies available so far had low industrial relevance and were difficult to be applied to guide real production of BK7 glass. To fill this gap, in this study, BK7 grinding characteristics are investigated and special emphasis is laid on the effects of machining parameters in terms of machined surface morphology, subsurface damage, and grinding force. Results show that wheel depth of cut plays the most important role in BK7 grinding, and a little difference of it leads to completely different material removal modes. Wheel speed is the second important parameter. It cannot change the dominant removal mode but can slightly adjust the characteristics of machined surface, subsurface damage, and grinding force. Workpiece feed rate has a small impact on BK7 grinding. From the viewpoint of industrial application, it suggests that the wheel depth of cut of 1.0 μm, high wheel speed, and high workpiece feed rate are more rational and practical because under this condition the grinding process can produce BK7 workpieces, which possess crack-free surface and sublet subsurface damage, with high removal rates and stable grinding forces. The findings of this paper are expected to be meaningful to provide the experimental references for the studies of the BK7 grinding process and guide industrial production of BK7 optical components.

    ABSTRACT: The load on grinding wheel (GW) binder in grinding process is an important issue in grinding studies. It affects binder behaviors, wheel-workpiece interaction, grinding force, heat and energy, machined surface quality, GW life, etc. However, few studies have systematically studied this topic and the conclusions proposed so far have been established on too many speculations and assumptions. To cover this gap, an analysis of loads on binder in grinding process is conducted based on discrete element method (DEM) and discontinuum-hypothesis-based grinding simulation. In the simulation, a discontinuous GW is modeled, experimentally calibrated, and validated. By the simulation, loads on binder are analyzed from the aspects of load history and force chain network. Load history results show that, according to the load patterns, binder can be classified into grain-binder and non-grain-binder. Grain-binder is the binder that is close to the grinding grains. This kind of binder periodically experiences the loads that contain the short and large impulse loading as well as long and small alternating loading. The former loading is produced by grinding process and called the loads in active phases while the latter is resulted from the high wheel speed and named the loads in inactive phases. Non-grain-binder is the binder that is ‘far away from’ grinding zone, and its loads are comparable and close to those of grain-binder in inactive phases, even the non-grain-binder does not adhere to a same grain. Force chain network analysis shows that, for different grinding phases and grain-workpiece contact statuses, grain-binder has rapidly-changing force chains in terms of length and scale. The directions of the force chains are always in line with grinding force directions. The findings in this study are expected to contribute to the understanding of grinding process and GW production.

    ABSTRACT: A simulated grinding wheel (GW), a numerical representative that describes the geometric and physical properties of realistic GWs, is the prerequisite and foundation of grinding research. However, most proposed numerical GWs treated realistic GWs as continuums without internal structure (e.g., binder and pores) and analyzed realistic GWs’ behaviors based on continuum-based material theories. To fill this gap, this study attempts to introduce a discontinuum-based method, discrete element method (DEM), into GW modeling and simulation. DEM GW simulation begins with two grinding-customized modifications to classic DEM theory. Then, with the aid of experimental measurement and statistical analysis, a DEM GW is modeled. Experimental validations are conducted thereafter. Results show acceptable agreements between DEM and realistic GWs in terms of topography, microscopic structure, fracture behavior in compressive test, and performance in grinding process. The proposed DEM GW’s ability in describing a discontinuous structure of realistic GWs covers the shortage of existing numerical GWs and might have other promising applications (e.g., GW formula optimization in production, GW preparation technology and parameter optimization, and GW wear and life prediction).

    ABSTRACT: The five-axis milling is widely applied to complex surface machining. When cutting forces of milling processes increase, the consequent workpiece and tool deflections may result in poor machining quality and high processing cost. There are a lot of researches on three-axis milling processes simulation, but very few about five-axis milling. To solve these disadvantages, this paper presents an integrated system containing modeling, simulation, and optimization of five-axis milling processes. The system has three major applications: (1) simulation verification of milling processes, (2) cutting forces prediction, and (3) cutting parameters (feedrate) optimization. The material removal process simulation used for verifying the five-axis milling is based on the three-dexel (depth element) model, and the cutter-workpiece engagement regions are extracted from the geometric model. According to the extracted cutter-workpiece engagement regions, the instantaneous cutting forces could be predicted. The feedrate is off-line modified for balancing the given maximum or the reference cutting forces with the predicted cutting forces on different machining steps. The developed system is validated experimentally to show that the modeling, simulation, and optimization methods could improve the accuracy and efficiency of five-axis milling processes.

    ABSTRACT: This paper presents a different web-based virtual turn-milling system, which aims to address the common problems of existed systems. The system has not only economical value, such as shortening product cycle from design to market, but also scientific interest, like proposing a new trajectory planning method. In other words, it helps sellers and buyers better understand products and enables planners and machinists to make decision or verify CNC codes much more accurate and faster. This system is made up of three levels, which is client browser, server, and database, and every level is divided into several specified functions. Among all the functions, turn-milling simulation function is the most crucial part. To enhance the system’s features, many sub-function modules are also adopted in simulation functions. Through these modules, the system implements material removal function, tool trajectory planning function, numerical control (NC) code inputting and compiling function, and so on. To realize these functions, the whole machining system is developed by using the network superiority of Java language and Virtual Reality Modeling Language (VRML) technology interaction, which will also lead to smaller data volume. Owing to the transportability of Java language and VRML technology as well as the good understandability of the system, this web-based virtual turn-milling system is also suitable to the dynamic demonstration and machining simulation of other NC machine tools. Some future research directions are given to perfect the system in the end.

    ABSTRACT: Aiming at the problem of the varying chip thickness and depth due to the complex motion in orthogonal turnmilling, the mathematic models describing relationship between cutting parameters were founded based on orthogonal turn-milling principle, and chip formation was generated by both the peripheral cutting edge and the face edge of cutter. In order to master the inherent rules of chip formation, the effect of cutting parameters on chip formation by orthogonal turn-milling were conducted by experiment in turn-milling process. It is shown that two sorts of chip formations with sawtooth are gained respectively in non-eccentricity and eccentricity machining process. The axial feed rate and the speeds cutting tool and workpiece are some important parameters of effect chip formation. The adiabatic shear takes place inside the chip by analyzing topography by orthogonal turnmilling, which the cause of sawtooth chip formation is local catastrophic shear. Therefore, it provides theoretical guidance and reference for the research on orthogonal turn-milling mechanism.

    ABSTRACT: This paper models the aeroengine health assessment problem as a multi-criteria decision-making (MCDM) problem and proposes a three-step evaluation model, which combines the techniques of fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (fuzzy AHP), fuzzy preference programming (FPP) and technique for order performance by similarity to ideal solution (TOPSIS). Fuzzy AHP and FPP methods are used to determine the relative weights of multiple evaluation criteria and synthesize the ratings of candidate aeroengines. Aggregated the evaluators’ attitude toward preference, then TOPSIS is employed to obtain a crisp overall performance value for each alternative to make a final decision. To illustrate how the approach is used for the aeroengine health assessment problem, an empirical study of a real case involving eleven evaluation criteria and ten initial commercial aeroengines of Air China Ltd. is conducted. The case study demonstrates the effectiveness and feasibility of the proposed evaluation procedure.

    ABSTRACT: Mandibular defects need customized titanium plates for reconstruction. The conventional design process of titanium plate is prior to surgical interventions. The efficiency and accuracy of the conventional method is mainly dependent on experiences and skills of the designer. In order to decrease the dependence on design experience and enhance the participation of surgeons in the design process, designing and fabricating a customized titanium plate implant according to Rapid Prototyping (RP) biomedical model could be employed. RP biomedical model is greatly convenient to diagnosis and treatment planning. It could decrease the operation time and the risk of misinterpretation of the medical problem. In these cases, the operation time was reduced by 1.5-2.5 hours. A physical biomedical model also facilitates surgery planning and makes the rehearsal and simulation of the operation possibly. The customized titanium plate shape conforms to the patient's mandible anatomy and is thick enough to provide the strength and stiffness needed to fix the mandible until the bone grafts and soft tissues heal. At the same time it is thin enough to avoid extensive intrusion into soft tissues and to avoid weighing too much for the patient's jaw.
