This paper presents a slip-line field model which considers the stress variation in the material deformation region due to the tool edge radius effect. The Johnson-Cook constitutive model is applied to obtain the shear flow stress and hydrostatic pressure as functions of strain, strain-rate, and temperature in the primary shear zone. The friction parameters between the rake face and chip are identified from cutting tests. The sticking and sliding contact zones between the tool and chip are considered in the secondary shear zone. The total cutting forces are evaluated by integrating the forces along the entire chip-rake face contact zone and the ploughing force caused by the round edge. The proposed model is experimentally verified by a series of cutting force measurements conducted during micro-turning tests. Micro-cutting process is analyzed from a series of slip-line field simulations. © 2010 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
