Machining of Hastelloy-X Based on Finite Element Modelling
Nickel-based alloys provide high corrosion resistance and high-temperature strength but these alloys possess poor machinability. Hastelloy-X is a nickel based alloy that has been used for high temperature use. There are many studies about finite element modeling of aerospace alloys but studies in literature with Hastelloy-X are limited. In the present work, machining characteristics of Hastelloy-X were investigated and a numerical model was developed for the turning operation of Hastelloy-X. Two input parameters (cutting speed and feed rate) were variated in the operations and the results were evaluated considering process outputs such as cutting forces, cutting temperature, effective stresses and chip morphology. Based on the verification of the numerical model using experimental results, presented material model is appropriate for the turning operation of Hastelloy-X at low and medium cutting speed machining conditions.
