Finite Element Method Applied on Metal Cutting: from Chip Formation to Coating Delamination by Tribo-Energetic Approach
MetadataShow full item record
Research on finite element methods applied on metal cutting is reviewed. From manufacturing point of view, the implementation of finite element methods for modeling and simulating the process of metal cutting can potentially reduce the number of iterations and result in a substantial cost savings. A general view of machining process evolution from simple analytic models to sophisticated finite element models is depicted. The gist of current research as well as its strategy and the special feature in modeling the metal cutting process are outlined and the future research needs is discussed. In conclusion, the use of finite element methods on metal cutting is limited to modeling the orthogonal cutting, chip formation, distribution of stress, strain, strain-rate, temperature and residual stress with majority assumption that cutting tool is a rigid body.
