A one-dimensional transient finite-difference model for the temperature distribution in orthogonal metal cutting, which was originally developed by Boothroyd, and then improved upon by Tlusty, is used to calculate the temperature field in the chip and in the tool in orthogonal cutting of AISI 1075 steel. In a series of compression tests using the NIST pulse-heated Kolsky bar, a phase transformation from pearlite to austenite was observed to take place within a few seconds near the eutectoid temperature (723 ºC) of the material. At temperatures above the transformation temperature in this material, which had been heat treated so that it had uniform pearlitic microstructure prior to testing, a large decrease in flow stress of approximately 50% was observed. It is shown how the predicted peak temperature along the chip-tool interface on the rake face decreases when this decrease in material strength is incorporated into a Johnson-Cook constitutive response model for the material.
