Finite Element Method Simulation of Drilling Process on Metal-Matrix Composites
Drilling is one of the complex machining processes, which has been widely applied in the manufacturing area. In this paper, a 3D coupled thermo-mechanical finite element model was used for simulating the thrust force, torque and von Mises equivalent stress at different cutting conditions. The J-C damage model (shear failure) was used in conjunction with the J-C plasticity model, as well as the continuous adaptive remeshing technical. The results show that the thrust force and torque increase with the increasing of the cutting speed and feed rate, and the influence of the feed rate is more obviously.
