Paper Abstract

A variation on the fluid jet polishing (FJP) technique, arbitrarily named Jules Verne (JV), will be described in this article. Jules Verne is a glass processing technique that removes material due to the fact that the tool and the surface are in close contact, and a slurry moves in between the tool and the surface. This approach has both advantages and disadvantages with respect to the original FJP modus: it enables a feed-controlled machining process, but deeper lying areas are harder to reach. A simulation model will be presented that predicts the flow of the slurry in the Jules Verne setup, which is followed by the computation of the trajectories of the particles in the flow. Furthermore, experimental data will be reported demonstrating the feasibility of the JV idea. A model will also be presented simulating the interaction between the surface and the impinging abrasives at a microscopic level, enabling the prediction of the final surface roughness.
