Investigation of Static Failure for Cemented Carbide Cylindrical End Mill
Investigation of the cutting tool failure is one of the important factors in order to optimize the cutting parameters. This paper studies the cutting tool stresses (maximum principal, maximum shear and von Mises) at the shank and at the tip using three failure theories. These stresses are analyzed by means of the finite element method using MSC patran/nastran software and the experimental method using electrical-resistance strain gages. The comparison of the stresses obtained from these two methods for different feed rates and different rotation speeds are depicted in figures.
