Analysis of Elastoplastic Deformation Observed on Machined Surfaces
MetadataShow full item record
In this paper, the study of material removal mechanism is focused on a non-linear quasi-static analysis of the elastoplastic interaction between a single-point cutting tool and the material being cut. An updated Lagrange procedure is applied to solve the large strain elastoplastic deformation problem which generates part of the irregularities observed on machined surfaces. A unique three-dimensional finite element model is developed to simulate the single-point metal cutting process. The effects of cutting parameter settings and workpiece material on the elastoplastic deformation of machined surfaces are investigated. The validity of this analysis is verified by experiments. The results of this analysis can be applied as a surface texture modification model to enhance the accuracy of a computer-aided surface texture simulator, an important part of a computer integrated manufacturing system.
