- Approximate solutions from classical plasticity have in the past been used to describe the process of orthogonal machining. Recently, numerical methods using more complex constitutive models have provided more accurate data on the state of deformation near the tool tip and the generated new surface in a conventional machining process. In this study we have used a viscoplastic material model and an efficient finite element approach to examine the process of orthogonal ultraprecision machining. In contrast to previous numerical studies the cutting thickness to tool tip radius ratio is finite, which requires the use of highly refined finite clement meshes to produce accurate solutions. Results are presented showing the effects of tool edge geometry, material constants, the coefficient of friction, and depth of cut. The numerical results are compared with ultraprecision machining experiments on fine grain copper where thrust and cutting forces and the damaged region around the tool tip (whose profile was characterized by atomic force microscopy) were carefully measured as a function of the uncut chip thickness.
