Quasicontinuum Simulation of Effect of Crystal Orientation and Cutting Direction of on Nanometric Cutting of Single Crystal Copper
Quasicontinuum simulation of nanometric cutting was conducted on single crystal copper to investigate the effect of crystal orientation and cutting direction on nature of deformation of this material. The model reduces the degrees of freedom in simulations of nanometric cutting process without sacrificing important physics. The simulation results show the crystal orientation and cutting direction have a significant effect on the nature of deformation of nanometric cutting process. In addition, the variations of strain energy of workpiece atoms in different crystal set-ups are investigated.
