Analysis of the cutting process in machining of advanced alloys, which are typically difficult-to-machine materials, is a challenge that needs to be addressed. In a machining operation, cutting forces causes severe deformations in the proximity of the cutting edge, producing high stresses, strain, strain-rates and temperatures in the workpiece that ultimately affect the quality of the machined surface. In the present work, cutting forces generated in a vibro-impact and hot vibro-impact machining process of Ti-based alloy, using an in-house Ultrasonically Assisted Turning (UAT) setup, are studied. A three-dimensional, thermo-mechanically coupled, finite element model was developed to study the thermal and mechanical processes in the cutting zone for the various machining processes. Several advantages of ultrasonically assisted turning and hot ultrasonically assisted turning are demonstrated when compared to conventional turning.
