Abstract: A Lagrange finite element model is presented that simulates cutting forces and temperature distributions when orthogonal turning aluminum alloy. The effect of the large strain, strain-rate and temperature associated with cutting on the material properties is taken into account. The model predicts chip geometry, stress, strain and temperature distribution in the workpiece, chip, and tool. Cutting experiments were performed to validate the model.
