Metal cutting of Ti6Al4V alloy 

  • Experiment data is available [1,2]

  • Numerical modeling [in]

The shear band with regular pattern is accurately captured by numerical simulation. The convergence study shows improving agreement with experiment.

The animation of numerical result below shows the detail of cutting process. This powerful numerical tool has been successfully applied to metal shearing and bushing analysis.
