Finite Element Analysis for Ti-6Al-4V in Ultrasonic-Vibration-Assisted Micro-Cutting
Ultrasonic-vibration-assisted micro-cutting of Ti-6Al-4V was simulated by finite element analysis software ADVANTEDGE. During the micro-cutting of Ti-6Al-4V the cutting forces were compared between conventional and ultrasonic-vibration-assisted method. In the ultrasonic-vibration-assisted micro-cutting process different frequency and amplitude were applied on the cutting tool. The influences of frequency and amplitude were analyzed. The cutting temperature increases with the increase of the amplitude, and the cutting temperature decreases with the increase of frequency. By using the simulation method the appropriate amplitude and frequency data can be obtained.
