Experimental Validation of Cutting Models


Dealing with the reality, models are always aids developed to fulfill a fallback. Thereby models represent a simplification of the reality. A validation is necessary to ascertain if models and simulations describe the reality adequate. In the field of machining the experimental methods to validate models involve the piezoelectric measurement of the cutting force, the measurement of temperatures by the means of pyrometers as well as thermographic cameras and the recordings of high-speed videos to study the chip formation.

Main topics:

  • Development and validation of material models
  • Development and validation of friction models
  • Validation of simulations of chip formation
