Prediction of shear plane angle is a way for prediction of the mechanism of chip formation, machining forces and so on. In this study, Merchant and Lee-Shaffer theories are used to predict the shear plane angles and cutting forces in machining of Al/SiCp MMC. The experimental cutting forces are compared with the calculated cutting force based on shear plane angles extracted from Merchant and Lee-Shaffer theories. The variation of these cutting forces with cutting speed, feed rate and depth of cut has been discussed. The results show that Merchant theory may be used as a good method for prediction of chip formation in machining of Al/SiCp MMC.
