A comparison of orthogonal cutting data from experiments with three different finite element models

Bil, H
Kilic, SE
Tekkaya, AE
The aim of this study is to compare various simulation models of orthogonal cutting process with each other as well as with the results of various experiments. Commercial implicit finite element codes MSC.Marc, Deform2D and the explicit code Thirdwave AdvantEdge have been used. In simulations, a rigid tool is advanced incrementally into the deformable workpiece which is remeshed whenever needed. In simulations with MSC.Marc and Thirdwave AdvantEdge, there is no separation criterion defined since chip formation is assumed to be due to plastic flow, therefore, the chip is formed by continuously remeshing the workpiece. However, in simulations with Deform2D, the Cockroft-Latham damage criterion is used and elements, which exceed the predefined damage value, are erased via remeshing. Besides this different modeling of separation, the three codes also apply different friction models and material data extrapolation schemes. Estimated cutting and thrust forces, shear angles, chip thicknesses and contact lengths on the rake face by three codes are compared with experiments performed in this study and with experimental results supplied in literature. In addition, effects of friction factor, different remeshing criteria, and threshold tool penetration value on the results are examined. As a result, it has been found that although individual parameters may match with experimental results, all models failed to achieve a satisfactory correlation with all measured process parameters. It is suggested that this is due to the poor modeling of separation.


A modeling approach for analysis and improvement of spindle-holder-tool assembly dynamics
Budak, E.; Erturk, A.; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 2006-01-01)
The most important information required for chatter stability analysis is the dynamics of the involved structures, i.e. the frequency response functions (FRFs) which are usually determined experimentally. In this study, the tool point FRF of a spindle-holder-tool assembly is analytically determined by using the receptance coupling and structural modification techniques. Timoshenko's beam model is used for increased accuracy. The spindle is also modeled analytically with elastic supports representing the bea...
Development of a micro-fabrication process simulator for micro-electro-mechanical systems(mems)
Yıldırım, Alper; Dölen, Melik; Department of Mechanical Engineering (2005)
The aim of this study is to devise a computer simulation tool, which will speed-up the design of Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems by providing the results of the micro-fabrication processes in advance. Anisotropic etching along with isotropic etching of silicon wafers are to be simulated in this environment. Similarly, additive processes like doping and material deposition could be simulated by means of a Cellular Automata based algorithm along with the use of OpenGL library functions. Equipped with an inte...

Mathematical models used for determining optimal machining conditions are non-linear functions subject to non-linear constraints. In this paper models for unit production cost and unit production time for multi-pass milling operations are developed, taking cutting speed, depth of cut, feed and number of passes as design variables. The problem is then solved by three non-linear programming methods, namely the generalized reduced gradient (GRG) method, the sequential unconstrained minimization technique (SUMT...

In this study, three fatigue crack growth life estimation methodologies are reviewed and sample calculations are made using these methodologies. Comparison of the results with respect to the methodologies are made. Three computer codes which represent these methodologies, CRACKS IV, FASTRAN and FATIGUE are selected for the analyses. The estimations are also correlated to the test results found in the literature. FALSTAFF spectra are used in the analyses.
A closed-form approach for identification of dynamical contact parameters in spindle-holder-tool assemblies
Özşahin, Orkun; Özgüven, Hasan Nevzat (Elsevier BV, 2009-01-01)
Accurate identification of contact dynamics is very crucial in predicting the dynamic behavior and chatter stability of spindle-tool assemblies in machining centers. it is well known that the stability lobe diagrams used for predicting regenerative chatter vibrations can be obtained from the tool point frequency response function (FRF) of the system. As previously shown by the authors, contact dynamics at the spindle-holder and holder-tool interfaces as well as the dynamics of bearings affect the tool point...
