Abstract:

Research on the flow field in the fibre-converging zone is always the emphasis and difficulty of compact spinning. Therefore in this work numerical studies on the three-dimensional flow field in four-roller compact spinning with a guiding device were carried out using Fluent software. First a three-dimensional physical model of the fibre-converging zone was obtained using AutoCAD software. Then numerical simulations of the three-dimensional flow field in four-roller compact spinning with and without a guiding device  were presented, respectively, using Fluent software. It was shown that the negative pressure is chiefly concentrated near the air-suction flume, and the velocity reaches the maximum on the centre line. Comparing with the flow field in compact spinning without a guiding device, the effective range of negative pressure in four-roller compact spinning with a guiding device increases significantly and negative pressure use efficiency improves accordingly. Furthermore the optimal installation position of the guiding device was studied, and it was shown that the optimal installation position is closely related to the linear density of the spun yarn. Finally the theoretical results obtained were illustrated by experiments.
