Comparison of Measurements and Simulations for Machining of Aluminum
Robert W. Ivester, Eric P. Whitenton, Laurent Deshayes
This paper compares experimental measurements and model-based simulations of cutting temperature, force, and chip thickness for machining of aluminum. Cutting temperatures have been measured using high-speed infrared videography, and forces have been measured using a 3-axis dynamometer. Results reported in this paper are for machining of 7075-T651 Aluminum at a range of cutting speeds from 100 m/min to 276 m/min. This paper focuses on comparing finite-element modelling simulations to the experimental data and discussion of limitations of experimental measurements and simulations in capturing process behavior. Differences between measurements and simulations are discussed in the context of limitations of simulation fidelity and measurement capability.
