Abstract

Metal cutting is one of the most widely-used manufacturing processes. Finite element simulation of this process has matured enough to give valuable insight of this process and, sometimes, good agreement with experiment. However, due to the complex nature of the metal cutting process, finite element simulation of metal cutting is not straightforward. This paper reviews the fundamentals of the finite element simulation of metal cutting. It also includes some significant advancements and applications reported recently. Conclusions and comments on future research are also presented. This paper contributes by helping to establish comprehensive knowledge about the finite element simulation of metal cutting and the state-of-the-art knowledge in this field.
