Paper Abstract

Wear profiles obtained with tools that oscillate in one direction and simultaneously displace perpendicularly in another are classified and analyzed. Profiles are obtained for different-shape tools and oscillation amplitudes. Analytical and numerical calculations of wear were made with known rectangular, elliptical, and diamond tool shapes. In the test, both sets of calculations turned out to be equal. A generalized equation was used to describe and speed up numerical calculations of the inner points of both known and other asymmetrical tools. The wear profiles obtained are of great help in enabling us to determine the shape, size, and oscillation amplitude of a tool to achieve a desired wear. Experimental results show that these simulated profiles can be obtained in practice using square, circular, and diamond tool shapes.
