Aluminium Cutting Heat Distribution - Thermal Transfer Function Approach
The development of a thermal model for materials during cutting currently represents a complex research topic. This paper presents an approach to calculating the heat distribution in an aluminium alloy during the cutting process. The alloy used, AlCu4PbMgMn, is monitored during machining without a cooling liquid. Special Thermal Transfer Functions (TTF) are used to calculate the quantity of heat transferred from the cutting tool into the aluminium workpiece.
