In order to investigate the effects of cutting edge radius on micro/meso-scale cutting process, the current paper is concerned with a fundamental investigation of the contribution of cutting edge radius to cutting temperature, stress field and size effect by means of two-dimensional finite-element simulation for orthogonal cutting process. The results indicated that cutting edge radius has remarkable effects on cutting temperature and stress field, and the existence of cutting edge radius is one of the main reasons generating size effect. The cutting edge radius affects the micro/meso scale cutting process at smaller uncut chip thickness by altering the effective rake angle and enhancing the plowing effect, affecting the material deformation process, expanding and widening the plastic deformation zone, and causing higher energy dissipation due to increased tool-chip contact length.
