Abstract

As a result of the growing need for environmental protection and the increasing number of health problems faced by workers, traditional lubricants are gradually being replaced. Nanofluids, which contain nanoparticles in the proper base fluid, can serve as a low carbon, “green” lubricant. Nanofluids show improved heat transfer capability and lubricating properties. Therefore, increasing lubricating effects is an effective way to improve machining performance. The tribological properties of grinding wheel/workpiece interface with different concentration of Al2O3 nanofluid micro-lubrication grinding were studied. The influences of the force ratio, viscosity and contact angle of Al2O3 nanofluids with different concentrations on the grinding force and the surface quality of workpieces are discussed. The best concentration of Al2O3 nanofluid with good lubrication performance in grinding zone was obtained.

14.1 Introduction

Based on grinding experimental study in Chapter Twelve and friction experimental verification in Chapter Thirteen, compared with other nanofluids, Al2O3 nanofluid has very good tribological properties (Zhang et al., 2016; Zhang et al., 2017). An optimized study of tribological properties under the optimal nanofluid concentration on the above basis is carried out in this chapter.
