Study of Parameters during Aluminum Cutting with Finite Element Method
The authors analyzed the force and stress values in the simplified cutting model and compared the results with the literature. For the study a 2D model was created in DEFORM 2D finite element software, using the temperature depended multilinear flow stress material model. The model was compiled according to the literatures. In this analysis were the effects of relief angel, tool angle, tool radius, depth of cut, and the cutting velocity examined. The values of forces, strain, temperature, stress and shear plane angle were examined at different values of geometry and machining parameters. For these examinations were used 28 parameter combinations. As a result of the study, the results for forces are similar to the results of examined literature at every parameter. The force results were checked on a simple tool geometry.
