Micromechanical Modelling of Elliptic Vibration-Assisted Cutting of Unidirectional FRP Composites

Abstract:

Article Preview

Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP) composites have been widely used in industry. However, the machining of FRP products is difficult, because of very different properties of the fibres and matrix. This paper discusses the development and implementation of a microstructure-based three-dimensional finite element model for the elliptic vibration-assisted (EVA) cutting of unidirectional FRP composites. The results showed that the EVA cutting has a good potential to the machining of FRP composites, featured a much reduced cutting force, better surface integrity and controllable chip size.
