Abstract

In this paper, an analytical model is developed for computation of the temperature distribution in a hollow cylindrical workpiece during machining with a single point tool. Such a model is useful for prediction of machined surface error arising from thermal expansion of the workpiece during machining. The model considers the interface between the tool and the workpiece to be a helically moving volumetric heat source. The governing equation satisfied by the temperature field, along with the appropriate boundary and initial conditions, is solved using the method of integral transforms. The experimental test facility used for the conduct of experiments for measurement of the temperature response in a cylindrical workpiece, namely a cylinder bore, during machining is discussed. The results from tests conducted using a laser as a heat source to verify the analytical model for temperature field are then presented. Several cylinder boring tests have been conducted, and the results from these tests along with the analysis performed with the temperature data to calibrate the temperature model are then discussed. Comparisons between predicted and measured temperature response in a cylinder bore during machining show good agreement.
