Grahic Jump Location
A schematic diagram of the “rolling-indenting” process in wiresaw manufacturing process under Free Abrasive Machining (FAM). The size of the abrasive grits is exaggerated for the sake of illustration; hence, the plot is not to scale.
Grahic Jump Location
Schematic of the modeling of interaction between the abrasive particle and substrate surface during the wiresaw manufacturing processes. The model considers the effects of the moving wire and the induced tangential load, Ft, in addition to the normal load, N. The region immediately under the conical abrasive indenter tip is the plastic zone.
Grahic Jump Location
The equivalent representation of the plastic deformation field under indentation and a spherical cavity expanding under internal pressure (Hill 22)
Grahic Jump Location
A comparison of the feed rate for material removal of the “rolling-indenting” and “scratch-indenting” processes in wiresawing under Free Abrasive Machining (FAM). The data, plotted with respect to the load per unit length of the wire, are normalized for the sake of comparison.
