ABSTRACT
The problem of tool wear monitoring in machining operations, has been an active
area of research for quite a long time. The accurate prediction of tool wear is important to
have a better product quality and dimensional accuracy. In cutting tools the area close to
the tool tip is the most important region and conditions at the tool tip must be carefully
examined, if improvements in tool performance are to be achieved
The present work involves the study of tool wear caused by the change in
hardness of single point cutting tool for a turning operation to predict the tool life in
orthogonal cutting based on the heat transfer analysis using Finite Element Method
(FEM). The Experiments were performed with EN-24 steel as workpiece and Carbide
uncoated tool bit as a tool material and the flank wear has been measured experimentally.
An empirical relation is used to determine temperature at tool-tip and further Finite
Element Method is used to determine the distribution of temperature over the surface of
tool and its impact on hardness which is related by an empirical relations.
The study shows the effect of Modified temperature due to strain rate on carbide
tool to describe the thermal softening of tool material and becomes prone to wear. The
results reveal that by increasing process variables in machining the wear and temperature
increases causing thermal softening of tool causing it to wear.
The results obtained have been verified with the available results from literature
for the variation of wear with the temperature and thermal softening of carbide tool. The
results prescribed demonstrate the significance of cutting parameters (speed, feed and
depth of cut) in thermal analysis for study of the cutting tool wear.

CHAPTER - 1
INTRODUCTION
Tool wear monitoring/sensing should be one of the primary objectives in order to
produce the required end products in an automated industry so that a new tool may be
introduced at the instant at which the existing tool has worn out, thus preventing any
hazards occurring to the machine or deterioration of the surface finish. Cutting tools may
fail due to the plastic deformation, mechanical breakage, cutting edge blunting, and tool
brittle fracture or due to the rise in the interface temperatures.
Throughout the world today, there is a continuous struggle for cheaper production
with better quality. This can be achieved only through optimal utilization of both material
and human resources. Machining operations comprise a substantial portion of the world’s
manufacturing infrastructure. They create about 15% of the value of all mechanical
components manufactured worldwide. Because of its great economic and technical
importance, a large amount of research has been carried out in order to optimize cutting
process in terms of improving quality, increasing productivity and lowering cost.
Tool wear influences cutting power, machining quality, tool life and machining
cost. When tool wear reaches a certain value, increasing cutting force, vibration and
cutting temperature cause surface integrity deteriorated and dimension error greater than
tolerance. The life of the cutting tool comes to an end. Then the cutting tool must be
replaced or ground and the cutting process is interrupted. The cost and time for tool
replacement and adjusting machine tool increases cost and decreases the productivity.
Hence tool wear relates to the economic of machining and prediction of tool wear is of
great significance for the optimization of cutting process.
At present, the prediction of tool wear is performed by calculating tool life
according to experiment and empirical tool life equations such as Taylor’s equation or its
extension versions. Although Taylor’s equation gives the simple relationship between
tool life and a certain cutting parameters, e.g. cutting speed, and is very easy to use, it
gives only the information about tool life. For the researcher and tool manufacturer tool
wear progress and tool wear profile are also concerned. Tool life equation gives no
information about the wear mechanism. But capability of predicting the contributions of
various wear mechanism is very helpful for the design of cutting tool material and



11
geometry. In addition, such tool life equations are valid under very limited cutting
conditions. For example, when tool geometry is changed, new equation must be
established by making experiment.
Mostly researchers concentrate on the study of wear mechanism and investigate
the mathematical relationship between wear due to various wear mechanisms and some
cutting process variables such as relative sliding velocity of workpiece material along
tool face, cutting temperature of tool face and normal pressure on tool face. Some tool
wear equations related to one or several wear mechanisms are also developed, such as
Usui’s tool wear equation [15], and [19].
In the recent decades, with the emergency of more and more powerful computer
and the development of numerical technique, numerical methods such as finite element
method (FEM), finite difference method (FDM) and artificial Intelligence (AI) are widely
used in machining industry. Among them, FEM has become a powerful tool in the
simulation of cutting process because various variables in the cutting process such as
cutting force, cutting temperature, strain, strain rate, stress, etc can be predicted by
performing chip formation and heat transfer analysis in metal cutting, including those
very difficult to detect by experimental method. Therefore a new tool wear prediction
method may be developed by integrating FEM simulation of cutting process with tool
wear model.
1.1 TOOL WEAR
Cutting tools are subjected to an extremely severe rubbing process. They are in
metal-to-metal contact, between the chip and work piece, under conditions of very high
stress at high temperature. The situation is further aggravated due to the existence of
extreme stress and temperature gradients near the surface of the tool. During cutting,
cutting tools remove the material from the component to achieve the required shape,
dimension and finish. However, wears are occurring during the cutting action, and it will
result in the failure of the cutting tool. When the tool wear reach certain extent, the tool
or edge change has to be replaced to guarantee the ordinary cutting action.
1.1.1 TOOL WEAR PHENOMENA
Under high temperature, high pressure, high sliding velocity and mechanical or
thermal shock in cutting area, cutting tool has normally complex wear appearance, which



12
consists of some basic wear types such as crater wear, flank wear, thermal crack, brittle
crack, fatigue crack, insert breakage, plastic deformation and build-up edge. The
dominating basic wear types vary with the change of cutting conditions. Crater wear and
flank wear shown in figure1.1 are the most common wear types [28].

Figure1.1: Types of Tool Wear

• Crater wear: In continuous cutting, for example in turning operation, crater wear
normally forms on rake face. It conforms to the shape of the chip underside and reaches
the maximum depth at a distance away from the cutting edge where highest temperature
occurs. At high cutting speed, crater wear is often the factor that determines the life of the
cutting tool, because the tool edge is weakened by the severe cratering and eventually
fractures. Crater wear is improved by selecting suitable cutting parameters and using
coated tool or ultra-hard material tool. Crater wear and flank wear shown in figure1.1 are
the most common wear types.

Figure 1.2: Behaviour of Flank wear



13
• Flank wear: Flank wear is caused by the friction between the newly machined work
piece surface and the tool flank face. It is responsible for a poor surface finish, a decrease
in the dimension accuracy of the tool and an increase in cutting force, temperature and
vibration. Hence the width of the flank wear land “VB” is usually taken as a measure of
the amount of wear and a threshold value of the width is defined as tool reshape criterion.
Figure1.2 shows a variation of flank wear rate with cutting time, showing the initial wear,
steady wear, and severe wear periods.
1.1.2 WEAR MECHANISM
In order to find out suitable way to slow down the wear process, many research
works are carried out to analyze the wear mechanism in metal cutting. It is found that tool
wear is not formed by a unique tool wear mechanism but a combination of several tool
wear mechanisms.
Tool wear mechanisms in metal cutting include abrasive wear, adhesive wear,
delamination wear, solution wear, diffusion wear, oxidation wear, electrochemical wear,
etc. Among them, abrasive wear, adhesive wear, diffusion wear and oxidation wear are
very important.
• Abrasive wear: Abrasive wear is mainly caused by the impurities within the
workpiece material, such as carbon, nitride and oxide compounds, as well as the built-up
fragments. This is a mechanical wear, and it is the main cause of the tool wear at low
cutting speed.
• Adhesive wear: The simple mechanism of friction and wear proposed by Bowden
and Tabor is based on the concept of the formation of welded junctions and subsequent
destruction of these. Due to the high pressure and temperature, welding occurs between
the fresh surface of the chip and rake face because of the chip flowing on the rake face
results in chemically clean surface.
Severe wear is characterized by considerable welding and tearing of the softer
rubbing surface at high wear rate, and the formation of relatively large wear particles.
Adhesion wear occurs mainly at low machining temperatures on tool rake face, such built
up edge (BUE).Under mild wear conditions, the surface finish of the sliding surfaces
improves.



14
• Diffusion wear: Wear is a process of atomic transfer at contacting asperities. A
number of workers have considered that the mechanism of tool wear must involve
chemical action and diffusion. They have demonstrated welding and preferred chemical
attack of (W) tungsten carbide in (W-Ti) tungsten-titanium carbides. There are several
ways in which the wear may be dependent on the diffusion mechanism.
(i) Gross softening of the tool: Diffusion of carbon in a relatively deep surface layer of
the tool may cause softening and subsequent plastic flow of the tool. This flow may
produce major changes in the tool geometry, which result in high forces and a sudden
complete failure of the tool.
(ii) Diffusion of major tool constituents into the work (Chemical element loss): The
tool matrix or a major strengthening constituent may be dissolved into the work and chip
surfaces as they pass the tool. In cast alloy, carbide or ceramic tools, this may be the
prime wear phenomenon. With HSS tools, iron diffusion is possible, but it seems unlikely
to be the predominant wear process. Diamond tool – cutting iron and steel is the typical
example of diffusion wear.
(iii) Diffusion of a work-material component into the tool: A constituent of the work
material diffusing into the tool may alter the physical properties of a surface layer of the
tool. For example, the diffusion of lead into the tool may produce a thin brittle surface
layer, this thin layer can be removed by fracture or chipping.

• Oxidation wear: High temperatures and the presence of air mean oxidation for most
metals. A slight oxidation of tool face is helpful to reduce the tool wear. It reduces
adhesion, diffusion and current by isolating the tool and the workpiece. But at high
temperature soft oxide layers, for example Co
3
O
4
, WO3, TiO
2
, are formed rapidly, and
then taken away by the chip and the workpiece. This results in a rapid tool material loss,
which is oxidation wear.
• Chemical wear: Corrosive wear (due to chemical attack of a surface)
• Fatigue wear: Fatigue wear is often a thermo-mechanical combination. Temperature
fluctuations and the loading and unloading of cutting forces can lead to cutting edge
cracking and breaking. Intermittent cutting action leads to continual generation of heat
and cooling as well as shocks of cutting edge engagement.



15
Under different cutting conditions dominating wear mechanisms are different. For
a certain combination of cutting tool and workpiece, the dominating wear mechanisms
vary with cutting temperature, as shown in figure1.3. According to the temperature
distribution on the tool face, it is assumed that crater wear is mainly caused by abrasive
wear, diffusion wear and oxidation wear, but flank wear mainly dominated by abrasive
wear due to hard second phase in the workpiece material.


Figure 1.3: Wear mechanisms


1.1.3 PREDICTION OF TOOL WEAR
Prediction of tool wear is complex because of the complexity of machining
system [15]. Tool wear in cutting process is produced by the contact and relative sliding
between the cutting tool and the work piece and between the cutting tool and the chip
under the extreme conditions of cutting area; temperature at the cutting edge can exceed
530°C and pressure is greater than 13.79 N/mm
2
. Any element changing contact
conditions in cutting area affects tool wear. Figure 1.4 shows influencing elements of the
tool wear [15]. These elements come from the whole machining system comprising
workpiece, tool, interface and machine tool:
• Workpiece: It includes the workpiece material and its physical properties
(mechanical and thermal properties, microstructure, hardness, etc), which determine
cutting force and energy for the applied cutting conditions.



16

Figure 1.4: Influencing elements of tool wear

• Tool: Tool material, tool coatings and tool geometric design (edge preparation, rake
angle, etc) need to be appropriately chosen for different operations (roughing, semi-
roughing, or finishing). The optimal performance of a cutting tool requires a right
combination of the above tool parameters and cutting conditions (cutting speed, feed rate,
depth of cut)
• Interface: It involves the interface conditions. In 80% of the industrial cutting
applications, coolants are used to decrease cutting temperatures and likely reduce tool
wear. Increasingly new technologies, such as the minimum liquid lubrication, have been
developed to reduce the cost of coolant that makes up to 16% of the total machining
costs.
• Dynamic: The dynamic characteristic of the machine tool, affected by the machine
tool structure and all the components taking part in the cutting process, plays an
important role for a successful cutting. Instable cutting processes with large vibrations
(chatters) result in a fluctuating overload on the cutting tool and often lead to the
premature failure of the cutting edge by tool chipping and excessive tool wear.
The problem of tool wear monitoring in machining operation has been active area
of research. This is because tool change strategies, product quality, tooling costs, and



17
productivity are all influenced by tool wear. Reduction in production cost and increase in
productivity can be realized by making the most use of a tool’s life and therefore
increasing the time between tool changes.

1.1.4 TOOL WEAR MODELS
Many mathematical models are developed to describe tool wear in quantity. They
can be categorized into two types: Tool life models and Tool wear rate models, and have
been elaborated below.
Tool life models: This type of wear models gives the relationship between tool life and
cutting parameters or variables. For example, Taylor’s tool life equation reveals the
exponential relationship between tool life and cutting speed, and Hastings tool life
equation describes the great effect of cutting temperature on tool life [19], as shown in
table 1.1. The constants n, C
1
, A and B are defined by doing a lot of experiments with
cutting speed changing and fitting the experimental data with the equation. It is very
convenient to predict tool life by using this equation. In various sizes of cutting database,
Taylor’s tool life equation and its extension versions under different cutting conditions
appear most frequently.
Tool life equations are suitable to very limited range of cutting conditions. As the
new machining technologies, e.g. high-speed-cutting or dry cutting, are getting spread in
manufacturing industry, the existing tool life equations need to be updated with new
constants and a lot of experimental work has to be done. In addition, except that tool life
can be predicted by these equations, it is difficult to get further information about the tool
wear progress, tool wear profile or tool wear mechanisms that are sometimes important
for tool designers.
Tool wear-rate models: These models are derived from one or several wear
mechanisms. They provide the information about wear growth rate due to some wear
mechanisms. In these modes, the wear growth rate, i.e. the rate of volume loss at the tool
face (rake or flank) per unit contact area per unit time (mm/min), are related to several
cutting process variables that have to be decided by experiment or using some methods.

Takeyama & Murata’s model is developed by considering the combination action
of abrasive wear and diffusive wear. Therefore the equation sums two parts up. One part
shows that abrasive wear is influenced by the cutting speed and feed. Another part
including universal gas constant and tool temperature describes diffusive wear.
Usui’s equation includes three variables: Sliding velocity between the chip and
the cutting tool, tool temperature and normal pressure on tool face. These variables can
be predicted by FEM simulation of cutting process or combining analytical method and
FDM. Therefore Usui’s equation is very practical for the implementation of tool wear
estimation by using FEM or by using the combination of FDM and analytical method.



19
The constants in tool wear rate models are depending on the combination of workpiece
and cutting tool material.

1.2 EFFECTS OF TOOL WEAR ON TECHNOLOGICAL
PERFORMANCE
1.2.1 CONSEQUENCES OF TOOL WEAR
• Decrease the dimension accuracy;
• Increase the surface roughness;
• Increase the cutting force;
• Increase the temperature;
• Likely cause vibration;
• Lower the production efficiency, component quality;
• Increase the cost.
Influence on cutting forces: Flank wear (or wear-land formation) and chipping of the
cutting edge affect the performance of the cutting tool in various ways. The cutting forces
are normally increased by wear of the tool. Crater wear may, however, under certain
circumstances, reduce forces by effectively increasing the rake angle of the tool.
Clearance-face (flank or wear-land) wear and chipping almost invariably increase the
cutting forces due to increased rubbing forces.
Surface finish (roughness): The surface finish produced in a machining operation
usually deteriorates as the tool wears. This is particularly true of a tool worn by chipping
and generally the case for a tool with flank-land wear – although there are circumstances
in which a wear land may burnish (polish) the workpiece and produces a good finish.
Dimension accuracy: Flank wear influences the plan geometry of a tool this may affect
the dimensions of the component produced in a machine with set cutting tool position or
it may influence the shape of the components produced in an operation utilizing a form
tool.
Vibration or chatter: The vibration is another aspect of the cutting process which may
be influenced by flank wear. A wear land increases the tendency of a tool to dynamic



20
instability. A cutting operation which is quite free of vibration when the tool is sharp may
be subjected to an unacceptable chatter mode when the tool wears.
1.2.2 CHARACTERISTICS OF TOOL WEAR
• Huge contact stress at the rake and flank surface
• High temperature (800-1000 °C for carbide and steel combination)
Hence, generalized wear theory cannot be directly used for accurate study of the
tool wear.

1.3 THERMAL ANALYSIS:
In machining operations, mechanical work is converted to heat through the plastic
deformation involved in chip formation and through friction between the tool and
workpiece. Some of this heat conducts into cutting tool, resulting in high tool
temperatures near cutting edge. Elevated tool temperatures have negative impact on a
tool life. The temperature of the tool plays an important role in the thermal distortion and
the, machined part’s dimensional accuracy, as well as in the tool life in machining. Tools
become softer and wear more rapidly by abrasion as temperatures are increased, and in
many cases constituents of the tool life may diffuse into the chip or react chemically with
the workpiece or cutting fluid.
1.3.1 HEAT GENERATION IN MACHINING
Heat generation while machining has significant influence on machining. It can
increases tool wear and thereby reducing tool life [17]. It gives rise to thermal softening
of cutting tool. It is commonly accepted that both the wear and failure mechanisms which
develop in cutting tools are predominantly influenced by temperature and it also results in
modification to the properties of workpiece and tool material such as hardness. In order
to predict the wear and failure characteristics of a tool, it is necessary to quantify the
temperatures which develop during the cutting operation.
In machining operations, mechanical work is converted to heat through the plastic
deformation involved in chip formation and through friction between the tool and
workpiece. Figure 1.5 shows three regions of heat generation in turning; which are, the
shear zone, the chip-tool interface and the tool-workpiece interface zone [17]:



21
• The shear zone: The shear zone, where the main plastic deformation takes place due
to shear energy. This heat raises the temperature of the chip. Part of this heat is carried
away by the chip when it moves upward along the tool. Considering a continuous type
chip, as the cutting speed increases for a given rate of feed, the chip thickness decreases
and less shear energy is required for chip deformation so the chip is heated less from this
deformation. About 80-85% of the heat generated in shear zone.
• The chip-tool interface zone: The chip-tool interface zone, where secondary plastic
deformation due to friction between the heated chip and tool takes place. This causes a
further rise in the temperature of the chip. This chip-tool interface contributes 15-20% of
heat generated.

Figure 1.5: Zones of heat generation & dissipation during the metal cutting process.

• The tool-workpiece interface zone: The work-tool interface zone 3, at flanks where
frictional rubbing occurs. This area contributes 1-3% of heat generated.
As the portion of heat that flows into the tool cause very high temperature in
vicinity of tool tip which in turn decrease the hardness of the tool material and in extreme
case may even cause melting. The wear rate of tool therefore increases, resulting in a
decrease in useful life of the tool. It is increasingly important to understand how
machining temperature are affected by the process variable involved which are cutting
speed, feed rate, and tool geometry.
1.3.2 ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES
Several methods have been used for measuring the temperatures generated during
metal cutting operations [12]. The main techniques used to evaluate the temperature
during machining are as following:



22
Experiment Retrospection: Many experimental methods have been devised to measure
the tool, chip or workpiece temperature and their distribution, these are:
• Tool-Chip Thermocouple Technique
• Embedded Thermocouple Technique
• Infrared Radiation Technique
• Metal Microstructure and Micro-hardness Variation Measurement
• Thermo-sensitive Painting Technique
• Temper Color Technique
Numerical Simulation: The numerical methods were successfully applied in calculating
the temperature distribution and thermal deformation in tool, chip and workpiece.
Especially, the finite element and boundary element methods can deal with very
complicated geometry in machining; they have great potential to solve the problems in
practice. These numerical methods used in measurement of temperatures are the
following:
• Finite Difference Method
• Finite Element Method
• Boundary Element Method
Semi-Analysis: In the semi analysis technique, some information such as chip surface
temperature or temperature distribution in workpiece is first obtained experimentally.
Then the temperature distribution and/or thermal deformation in chip and sometimes in
the tool and workpiece as well are calculated analytically. The inverse heat transfer
problem in machining is an example of these methods.
1.3.3 HEAT TRANSFER IN MACHINING
Heat is transferred across boundaries by conduction, convection and radiation
because of the temperature gradient, and air present at ambient temperature [8].
• Heat transfer inside the chip and workpiece, the tool and tool-holder is by conduction.
• Heat transfer between coolant/air and the chip/tool/workpiece is by convection.
• Radiation is rarely investigated in traditional machining operations.



23
1.3.4 HEAT EFFECTS
In metal cutting, severe deformations take place in the vicinity of the cutting edge
of the tool because of the high temperatures resulting from machining operation. These
elevated temperatures have a negative impact on tool life, and quality of surface.
Following are some of the effects of heat on various cutting parameters:
• Heat Influences on Cutting Forces: The heat influence on the cutting forces is mainly
because of the following reasons-the friction co-efficient is tightly dependent upon
temperature, and the properties of cut material also depend on temperature.
• Heat Effects on Tool Life
• Heat Influences on Surface Toughness
• Heat Influences on Thermal Deformation in Lathe.
• Heat Effects on Mass Transfer in Coolant Circulation System.
1.3.5 Finite Element Method in Thermal Analysis
Finite element analysis is a most useful and accurate approach for the
determination of field variables that is made possible by advancements in computational
and processing power of computers and thus it is almost used for all the computer aided
design methodologies in recent years. Applications range from deformation and stress
analysis to field analysis of heat flux, fluid flow, magnetic flux, seepage and other flow
problem. In this method of analysis, a complex region defining a continuum is discredited
into simple geometric shapes called finite elements. The Present work is also based on
the application of finite element for thermal analysis of single point cutting tool for
turning operation. Once the model developed for determination of temperature field for
single point cutting tool, it can also be implemented for other multipoint processes like
drilling, milling or grinding also.

CHAPTER - 2
LITERATURE REVIEW
The problem of tool wear monitoring in machining operations has been an active
area of research for quite some time. The machining processes are inherently dynamic in
nature due to various factors. Some of them can be mathematically modeled, but others
are too uncertain. Thus simplifications are made while modeling the extremely complex
machining processes. Research in the field of machining has been primarily done on
single point turning process, as it is the basic metal removal processes. Once a model has
been developed for turning operation, it can be implemented for other multipoint
processes like drilling, milling or grinding.
In this work tool wear along with temperature had been selected as the criterion
for the process control in turning operation. In recent years, numerical calculating
methods have been widely developed in most areas of engineering and have been used to
determine the thermal behaviour of cutting tools. In general, the application of finite
element and finite difference techniques has been successful, yet still relies heavily on the
accuracy of experimentally determined boundary conditions.
This chapter deals with the review of the work done on the topic. Firstly the
review is on the general analysis of tool, concentrating mainly on prediction of
temperature and tool wear. Then the concentration shifts on to second part, which is the
review on use of finite element in the thermal analysis of the cutting tool.
2.1 MODELS FOR DETERMINATION OF TEMPERATURE FIELD
Temperature measurement and prediction have been a major focus of machining
research for several decades. Throughout the 20
th
century, much effort has been
undertaken into measuring the temperature generated during cutting operations.
Interfacial temperatures in machining play a major role in tool wear and can also result in
modification to the mechanical properties of the workpiece and cutting tool.
Leshock et al [4] presented the results the tool chip interface temperature
measurement by the tool work thermocouple technique. Tool chip interface temperature
is analyzed under a wide range of cutting condition during turning of 4140 steel alloys
and Inconel 718 nickel based alloys with tungsten carbide tools. The obtained
experimental results are compared with the predictions based on the Loewen and Shaw’s



25
model. In addition an empirical model for the tool face temperature terms of cutting
parameters is established. Finally, the tool chip interface temperature is analyzed with
both flank and crater wear during machining of 4140 steel alloys.
Sullivan et al [12] presented different methods used for the measurement of
temperature of a single cutting tool. Initial experiments conducted involved the
simultaneous measurement of forces & temperature. Use of the tool-chip interface as a
thermocouple was one of the first methods of estimating interfacial temperatures in
machining process. These experiments focused on the use of embedded thermocouples
and using the infrared camera to monitor the process.
Komanduri et al [13] addresses two fundamental thermal issues of tribology in
orthogonal machining with a sharp tool, namely, the nature of the apparent heat partition
in the shear plane and the variable heat partition at the chip-tool interface. The
distribution of temperature in the chip, the tool, and the work material was determined
analytically considering the combined effect of these two heat sources in orthogonal
machining. The new analytical model was verified for a wide range of Peclet numbers,
using the available experimental data from the literature.
Huda et al [14] developed a technique for measuring temperature at the interface
between a cutting tool and a chip. A two-color pyrometer with fused fiber coupler was
applied to the temperature measurement of the tool-chip interface in dry and wet turning.
By using this pyrometer, it is possible to measure the temperature of a very small object
without emissivity affecting the results. The temperature distributions on the cutting tool
and the work material were analyzed using the finite element method. Good agreement
was obtained between the analytical results and experimental ones.
Miller et al [21] developed Experimental techniques using modern, digital
infrared imaging and successfully applied them during this study to gather cutting tool
temperature distributions from orthogonal machining operations. This new process has
seemingly overcome many problems associated with past experimental techniques.
Ranc et al [23] developed a high-speed broad band visible pyrometer using an
intensified CCD camera (spectral range: 0.4 mm–0.9 mm) for the measurement of the
machining temperature. The maximum temperature in the chip can reach 730°C and
minimal temperature which can be detected is around 550°C. The advantage of the



26
visible pyrometry technique is to limit the temperature error due to the uncertainties on
the emissivity value and to have a good spatial resolution (3.6 mm) and a large
observation area.

2.2 APPLICATION OF FEM FOR TOOL WEAR RESEARCH
A more promising approach for developing an orthogonal metal cutting model is
provided by an advanced numerical discretization scheme, such as the finite element
method. This part basically discusses about the application of FEM in predicting the tool
temperature and thus estimating the tool wear.
Shih et al [1] developed the, methodology using FEM for the simulation of plane–
strain orthogonal cutting processes with continuous chip formation. The orthogonal metal
cutting experiment was setup on a shaper, and the distributions of the residual stresses of
the annealed carbon steel are measured using the X-ray diffraction method. Along with
this, they also developed experimental procedures for orthogonal metal cutting and
measurement of distributions of residual stresses using the X-ray diffraction method.
They formulated a 4 nodes 8 degree of freedom, quadrilateral plane–strain finite element.
The finite element formulation was divided in two phases. Only thermal finite element
formulation is discussed here.
• Thermal finite element formulation: The temperature increment during the metal
cutting process is simulated using a linear thermal finite element formulation by
assuming that the thermal conductivity, density and heat capacity of the workpiece
material remain unchanged during the displacement increment. The thermal finite
element formulation for temperature analysis can be written in a matrix form as

Based on the equation (2.1), the temperature distribution of the workpiece is
obtained and the material properties are thus generated.
Shih [2] developed plane – strain Finite Element Method and applied to analyze
the orthogonal metal cutting process. Detailed work-material modeling, which included
the coupling of large strain, high strain rate and temperature effects, was used to simulate
the material deformation during cutting process. The finite element predictions of the
residual stresses were compared with measurements obtained from X-ray diffraction.
They concluded that finer element mesh configuration should be used to achieve more
accurate modeling of the cutting process and also to improve the FE predictions.
Gillibrand et al [3] developed a technique to predict the temperatures generated
along the tool/chip interface using standard analytical methods. The temperature
distribution along the tool/chip interface is applied as a heat source input to a finite
element model of the tool. They developed a package for estimating the thermal behavior
of both single and multi-point cutting tools using base data which are generally available,
or may be acquired through standard cutting tests. They concluded that with the
continued development of surface engineered cutting tools, and the product testing
involved, this easy-to-apply, rapid, low-cost package would be useful for giving an
indication of the expected thermal behavior of surface engineered cutting tools.



28
Mills et al [5] developed a technique to monitor the deformation and crack
propagation around inclusions using a micro cutting device in a scanning electron
microscope while machining is being carried out. The temperature distribution field
within a cutting tool under conditions of adherent layer formation was determined using
the FEM. It was found that the temperature gradient in the cutting tool from the tool face
at a position 0.25 to 0.5 mm from the major cutting edge is much smaller in the presence
of an adherent layer than without an adherent layer.
Tieu et al [6] presented a research work carried out on the cutting tool temperature
field with adhering layer formation when machining Ca-S tree-cutting stainless steel. By
means of combining thermocouple measuring method and finite element (FE) analysis,
the cutting temperature distributions and their relation with the formation of adhering
layer were investigated. Based on the experimental work using a miniature thermocouple
and the analytical results from FE modeling, they concluded that the adhering layer
thickness was uneven and the average temperature of cutting zone for adhering layer
formation was within a range of 950-1050°C.
Chu et al [7] developed technique for measuring temperature close to primary
cutting edge in turning operation. The cutting temperatures of a 0.16 % carbon bright
drawn mild steel, have been measured for a range of cutting speed and feedrates at a
constant depth of cut. Tool nose radius was also varied. The correlations for workpiece
temperature of cutting speed & feed have been developed. It showed that cutting speed &
feed rates have significant impact on temperature but nose radius has little effect.
Ostafiev et al [8] analyzed heat flux transfer in the cutting tool in steady state
orthogonal cutting. The method involved as interactive procedure to determine
temperature distributions in the tool from varying heat flux transfer conditions. The
temperature distributions determined from this procedure were compared with those
obtained experimentally. A coincidence of the experimental and theoretical temperature
distributions implied that the chosen heat flux model was appropriate.
Yen et al [15] developed a methodology to estimate the tool wear of carbide tool
in orthogonal cutting using FEM. In metal cutting, tool wear is strongly influenced by the
cutting temperature, contact stresses, and relative sliding velocity at the interface. These
process variables depend on tool and workpiece materials, cutting condition, tool



29
geometry, use of coolants etc, for the given application. Based on temperatures and
stresses on the tool face, tool wear may be estimated with acceptable accuracy by using
an empirical wear model and using FEM simulation. The methodology proposed by them
has three different phases, the first phase includes, a development of tool wear model for
the specified tool-workpiece pair, the second phase includes, modifications in the
commercial FEM code and last phase includes experimental validation of the developed
methodology. The wear prediction procedure starts with a coupled thermo-viscoplastic
Lagrangian cutting simulation with isotropic strain-hardening using DEFORM
®
-2D. In
order to obtain the cut chip geometry near the steady state, a special simulation module,
“Konti-Cut”, developed by WZL at University of Aachen (RWTH), Germany, was
utilized.
Zhao et al [18] developed a methodology to investigate the effects of the internal
cooling on the flank wear of the cutting tools in orthogonal cutting. A flank wear model
for a cutting tool in orthogonal cutting is presented which is based on previous wear
models and includes the normal stress and the effect of temperature on the flank wear.
According to the prediction of this model, the wear performance of carbide cutting tools
and HSS cutting tools are different due to their different thermal softening behavior, and
they have formulated the following methodologies:
1. Flank wear model for orthogonal metal cutting
In all the previous wear models studied by them, hardness H and normal stress
t
σ are two main parameters closely related to the wear and the wear rate is usually
proportional to
t
σ and inversely proportional to H. Mathematically wear can be expressed
as follows: dW = K

The wear volume can be converted to the wear land measurement VB with the
assumption of a zero degree rake angle of the cutting tool

in figure 2.1. The apparent area of the tool–work contact interface can be written as
follows: A = w V

The normal stress at the flank face can be calculated as given by the following

2. Effects of temperature on flank wear in orthogonal cutting
To consider the effects of the temperature on the flank wear, it is necessary to
know the thermal softening of the cutting tool material versus the temperature. The
exponential function used to predict thermal softening is as follows:
H (T) = Ho exp (−αT)
Where H (T) is the hardness of a material at a given temperature, T is in

C, H

The flank wear in arbitrary units versus the temperature was calculated by them
for both carbide and HSS material.
YC Yen et al [19] developed a methodology to estimate the tool wear and tool life
of a carbide tool in orthogonal cutting using FEM simulation. The proposed procedure for
predicting the tool wear at any time instance t
k
was divided in four phases.
• “Konti Cut” Simulation
• Pure Heat Transfer Analysis
• Calculating Tool Wear Rate
• Updating the Tool Geometry
The simulations using a cutting tool with constantly updated rake face and flank
face geometries have shown that it is possible to predict the evolution of tool wear at any
given cutting time from FEM simulations by using the proposed methodology by them.
Amir et al [20] developed methodology to extend the applicability of Oxley’s
analysis of machining to a broader class of materials beyond the carbon steels used by
Oxley and co-workers. The performance of the model was studied by comparing its
predictions with experimental data for different materials and it was found that model
accurately produces the dependence of the cutting forces and chip thickness as a function
of undeformed chip thickness and cutting speed and accurately estimates the temperature
in the primary and secondary shear zones.
Arsecularatne et al [22] investigated the application of the Oxley modeling
approach to high speed machining (HSM) process for gaining a fundamental



32
understanding and performance prediction of this process which is gaining increased
popularity due to its many economic and technological advantages such as faster metal
removal rates, efficient use of machine tools and, improved surface finish and lower
cutting forces. In the present work, this theory has been applied for two plain carbon
steels and low alloy steel under HSM conditions. The predicted cutting forces, chip
thicknesses, and secondary deformation zone thicknesses are then compared with the
experimental results obtained under identical conditions. Good agreement has been
shown between measured and predicted results.
Moufki et al [26] developed an analytical approach for thermomechanical
modeling of oblique cutting process. The material characteristics such as strain rate
sensitivity, strain hardening and thermal softening were considered. A critical study was
also presented by them in order to show the influences of the input parameters of the
model including the normal shear angle, the thickness of the primary shear zone and the
pressure distribution at the tool–chip interface. The model permits to predict the cutting
forces, the chip flow direction, the contact length between the chip and the tool and the
temperature distribution at the tool–chip interface which has an important effect on tool
wear.
Molinari et al [27] developed an analytical approach to model the
thermomechanical process of chip formation in a turning operation. The model presented
can be used to predict the cutting forces, the global chip flow direction, the surface
contact between chip and tool and the temperature distribution at the rake face which
affects strongly the tool wear. The tendencies predicted by the model were also compared
qualitatively with the experimental trends founded in the literature.

2.3 SUMMARY OF LITERATURE
From above literature review, it can be concluded that FEM has been effectively
implemented to determine the temperature distribution on the tool surface, in order to
predict the tool wear. Since machining parameters affect the wear and heat generation in
tool, so further study has been carried out to develop the relation between machining
parameters and mechanical properties which are governed by modified machining
temperatures due to strain rate.

CHPATER - 3
INSTRUMENTATION AND EXPERIMENTATION
The objective of the present work is to develop methodology to relate tool wear
with mechanical properties of a material such as Hardness. Here hardness is related with
the modified temperature, including the effect of strain rate, of cutting tool. Finite
Element Analysis is used to depict the temperature at various points of cutting tool by
changing various machining parameters such as cutting speed (V), depth of cut (d), feed
rate (f).
3.1 INSTRUMENTATION
The various instruments used for experimentation are discussed here in this
section:
3.1.1 FORCE MEASUREMENT
A force measurement actually involves the measurement of a deflection, caused
by that force, with a suitable calibration between the force and the deflection it produces.
For measuring small deflections, various devices have been used. Some of them are listed
below:
1. The dial indicator.
2. Pneumatic devices.
3. Optical devices.
4. Piezoelectric crystals.
5. Strain Gauges.
Out of these, most widely used dynamometer is of strain gauge type. In this
category, bounded- wire strain gauges have commonly been used. Usually these bonded
wire gauges have been specified by the resistance and the gauge factor (F). The gauge
factor is a measure of sensitivity of gauge and is defined as:
R
R
l l
R R
F


=

Where, ∈ is the normal strain and can be calculated as:
l
l ∆
∈=



34
In our case, bonded wire strain gauge of resistance 120+ and gauge factor 2, have
been used. In order to measure the strains of the order of 1+, the changes of the resistance
of the same order of magnitude need to be measured. This can be made by means of
Wheatstone bridge as shown in figure 3.1[24]. No current will flow through the
galvanometer (G) if the four resistances satisfy the equation

For the sake of simplicity, the lathe operation is frequently taken as a orthogonal
cutting process. In this case, the resultant force will act in a known plane and only two
force components are required to analyze the cutting process. A schematic diagram of the
dynamometer used in the present work is shown in the figure 3.2[24]. In the present case,
the axial cutting force, Fc, and the tangential cutting force, Ff, have been used.

Figure 3.1: Wheatstone bridge



Figure 3.2: Dynamometer



35
A two component cutting force dynamometer of cantilever type is used in the
present work. The dynamometer structure is made of aluminum. The action of the forces
is to bend the structure. The axial cutting force, Fc, bends the structure about the one axis
and the tangential feed force, Ff, bends the structure about another axis. Strain gauges
have been used to measure these distortions (moments), and the recordings are calibrated
to give a measure of the forces applied.
3.2 EXPERIMENTATION
Experiments were carried out on a turning lathe. A carbide tip turning tool was
clamped in a two component strain gauge dynamometer using a tool holder designed in a
machine lab during the thesis work. For the experimentation, EN 24 steel workpiece of
600mm length was held in a three – jaw chuck and supported by a center in the tail stock.
Tool height and tool overhang was set to the required level with the help of gauges. A
rough turning pass was made initially to eliminate the runout of the workpiece. The
output flank wear was measured with the help of a tool room microscope. The straight
edge with Rake angle 0 = α has been used to have an orthogonal cutting.
3.2.1 PLANNING OF EXPERIMENT
A scientific approach to planning of experiments must be incorporated in order to
perform an experiment most effectively. Statistical design of experiments is the process
of planning the experiments so that the appropriate data could be collected which may be
analyzed by statistical method resulting in valid and objective conclusions.
Planning of experiments was employed in order to fulfill the following requirements:
• To get the data uniformity distributed over the whole range of controllable factors to
be investigated.
• To reduce the total number of experiments.
• To establish a relationship between different input variables and the output accurately
in the selected range of investigation
3.2.2 EXPERIMENTAL PROCEDURE
The experiments were made on the HMT lathe using a bar turning process under
dry conditions. For the range of range of cutting conditions (cutting speed, feed, and
depth of cut) it was required to measure the two force components F
t
and F
f
, thickness of
chip and flank wear. A total of eight experiments were carried out, all with the same basic



36
56 mm
configuration and carbide inserts were replaced after performing a single test so as to see
the effect of temperature on the tool individually at different cutting conditions. The
selected ranges of each parameter used are given below:
• Work material: The EN 24 Steel (0.35- 0.45 %C, 0.45- 0.6 %Mn, 1.3 - 1.8 %Ni)
was chosen for the present investigation with a diameter of 60 mm and 600 mm length.




600mm
Figure 3.3: Dimensions of the workpiece


The figure 3.3 shows the dimensions of the workpiece (EN24) before the turning
process.
• Tool material: The tool material used should be capable of high speed machining
with dry cutting conditions. In present investigation carbide inserts were used for
performing the experiments.
• Tool geometries:
a) Tool length: 16.02mm
b) Tool width: 8.02 mm
c) Nose radius: 0.4 mm
• Test conditions: carbide inserts were used to machine EN24 steel with following
cutting parameters
a) Rotational speed:70.08 – 179.82 (m/min)
b) Feed: 0.0787 – 0.175 (m/sec)
c) Depth of cut: 0.508,0.762,1.27 (mm)

3.2.3 EXPERIMENT METHODOLOGY
A HMT make lathe was used for turning experiment whose specifications have
been given in appendix -A. Figure3.4 shows the schematic diagram of the machine and
equipment setup.

Then the actual experiments have been carried out with the different input cutting
conditions for different experiments for constant volume of material removal in each
case. The experiments carried out can be classified:
1. Carry out experiment on lathe machine using EN 24 as work piece and commercial
available Carbide Tool of triangular shape.
2. Machining is done with different sets of Cutting speed, depth of cut, & feed rates.
3. Measuring the cutting forces with dynamometer.
4. Measuring the deformed chip thickness using vernier calliper.
5. Measuring the flank wear of the carbide insert with microscope.
6. Correlating these wear trend with thermal softening of tool due to rise in temperature
in insert.
The output flank wear is measured with the help of a metallurgical microscope
having graduation marked on the eyepiece. These input cutting conditions are fed to
program and value of temperature and Hardness at every nodes of the tool is thus
calculated.

The present chapter deals with the formulation of three-dimensional governing
equation for heat conduction used to obtain the temperature distribution on the face of the

coordinate system into distorted shapes in global Cartesian system and then evaluating
the element equation for the distorted element. The parent element may be selected from

CHAPTER - 5
RESULTS AND DISCUSSIONS

In the present chapter the results for the present problem, that is for the solution of
the thermal softening of the tool material in order to predict the tool wear have been
developed in accordance with the previously developed models for tool wear [4], [20]
and [22]. The number of experiments has been conducted to find out the cutting forces
and flank wear of the tool, made of tungsten carbide, at varying machining parameters,
which are cutting speed (V), cutting feed (f) and depth of cut (d). Using the experimental
data, the strain rate and average interface temperature for the various cutting conditions
have been obtained, which have been ultimately used to determine the modified
temperature at the tool and the workpiece contact area. The measured experimental
values are than fed into the FEM program to predict the temperature at all the nodes of a
cutting tool. For simplicity the tool is assumed to be a single point with zero nose radius.
This temperature of contact area have been used to determine the overall temperatures at
the various parts of the cutting tool using the heat transfer equation developed and using
the FEM methods for the solution of these equations for the present problem with the
appropriate boundary condition as has been explained in chapter 4. This predicted
temperature is than related with the hardness of the cutting tool (Thermal softening).

The table 5.1 shows the numerical values of the various machining parameters
(cutting speed, feed and the depth of cut), that have been selected for experimentation, for
the measurement of the temperature, strain rate and flank wear. The EN24 steel
workpiece material has been used for experimentation, and its specifications have been



49
shown in appendix B. The cutting material used is Tungsten Carbide, and its specification
has been mentioned in appendix C.
The table 5.2 shows the experimental values of wear, strain-rate and resultant
cutting forces for different speed, feed and depth of cuts for the different set of
experiments conducted on the carbide cutting tool. The levels of the process variables,
which have been used for the experiments of the validation set, are in between the [-1, 1]
range. Here, -1 stands for the minimum, and +1 stands for the maximum level of
parameters.

8 +1 +1 +1 0.075 830 398

To eliminate the effect of wear on the experiments, the tools have been replaced
after every cut of constant volume of workpiece material. In total eight carbide bits have
been used for all the different set of experiments to be conducted. Tool edge has been
made straight or parallel to the chuck to have an orthogonal cut. Constant volume
signifies that equal amount of material was removed in all the different sets of experiment
conducted. This has been done so that all the measurements should be taken correctly at
the same operating conditions to have a good accuracy in results with minimum possible
error.
The relationship between machining parameters and temperature generated at tool
workpiece interface has been calculated using the empirical relations as mentioned in the
references [4], [24], and [26]. The temperature at tool tip was calculated by changing
different depth of cut, feed rate and cutting velocity. Strain rate has also been measured
using the empirical relations and than both the measured temperature and the strain rate



50
are put into the equation to find the modified temperature which considers the effect of
both.
This temperature has been applied to analyze the temperature distribution on the
tool at different edge, nodes and elements through finite element analysis, considering
heat loss because of conduction in the tool material and convection with air at ambient
temperature. Tool material hardness has been calculated with the help of the temperature
distribution obtained as a result of FEM analysis [18]. The results have been obtained for
tool wear with the change in machining parameters by relating the heat generated at the
tool-workpiece interface and taking hardness of tool material as a function of temperature
[18].
5.2 MODELLING OF SOLUTION DOMAIN USING FEM
In order to use the finite element technique, mathematical expressions have been
derived and discussed in the previous chapter and have been used to predict the
temperature at the various locations of the cutting tool. Computer program in VC
++

environment based on the FEM formulation presented in the previous chapter have been
developed and numerical results for temperature and its effect on the hardness of the
cutting tool have been obtained and discussed in preceding topics.
The following are the details of the discritization of the solution domain carried
out for the FEM Analysis and thus used in the developed computer program for the
generation of the results.

5.3 VALIDATION OF RESULTS

Figure 5.1: Relationship between Cutting tool temperature and flank distance

In order to check the validity of the analysis and the solution procedure discussed
in chapter 4, the results for temperature field and its effect on thermal softening of cutting
tool have been obtained from the developed computer program by using the experimental
data of strain-rate and flank wear, and have been compared with the results of Leshock et
al [4], for checking the validity of the results. The relation between flank edge distance
and the final temperature variation on the cutting tool have been developed for the range
of the cutting parameters as given in the table 5.1, and have been shown here in
graphically form in figure 5.1. It is interpretable from the graph, that as we move away
from the flank edge, the temperature keeps on decreasing and thus the tip of the carbide
cutting tool is prone to more wear rather than the distances away from the tool tip. The
results from the reference are well in accordance with the results of the present work, as
the maximum variation in the results is only of the order of 5.8 %.
5.4 VARIATION OF HARDNESS WITH FLANK-EDGE DISTANCE
The figure 5.2 shows the relation of tool hardness with the flank distance at
different temperature distribution on flank edge of the carbide tool bit. As at the tool tip
the temperature is maximum, therefore the hardness is less. Using the mathematical
model for modified cutting temperature as discussed in section 4.2, the three different
values of modified cutting temperatures 750 K, 900 K, and 1050 K, have been calculated



52
from the corresponding strain-rate values which are 840 s
-1
, 830 s
-1
, and 577 s
-1

respectively, corresponding to the different values of feed, speed and depth of cut as
shown in table 5.1. At the same flank-edge distance, for these values of modified cutting
temperatures, we have different hardness values along the flank face of the tool. The
temperature starts decreasing because of heat loss as we move away from the tool tip
along the flank surface the hardness of material increases.

Figure 5.3: Variation of Temperature with resultant cutting force

The figure 5.3 shows the variation of temperature with the cutting force. As
shown in the graph, as the cutting forces increases the temperature at the tip of the cutting
tool also increases due to higher frictional forces at the tip of the carbide tool bit. This



53
increased temperature of the tool leads to the reduction of hardness value of the cutting
tool and thus the tool wear.
5.6 VARIATION OF FLANK WEAR WITH CUTTING FORCE

Figure 5.4: Variation of Flank Wear with the resultant cutting force

The figure 5.4 shows the variation of the wear with the cutting tool Force. As
shown the flank wear of carbide insert increases with the increase in the forces during the
bar turning process. This is because increase in forces leads to increase in the temperature
of the cutting tool as shown in figure 5.3 and increased temperatures further leads to the
flank wear of the cutting tool due to the thermal softening.
5.7 VARIATION OF FLANK WEAR WITH MODIFIED CUTTING
TOOL TEMPERATURE


Figure 5.5: Variation of flank Wear with respect to modified temperature




54
The figure 5.5 shows the variation of the wear with the modified cutting tool
temperature due to the strain rate. As shown the flank wear of carbide insert increases
with the increase in the temperature of the cutting tool. As increased temperatures at the
tip of the cutting tool leads to the reduction of the hardness value, that is the thermal
softening, and thus to the flank wear of the carbide cutting tool.
5.8 REGRESSION EQUATION
Regression equations obtained from the experimental data of a bar turning process
using carbide insert were obtained using Data Fit software Version8.0.x developed by
Oakdale Engineering. The regression equation relating tool flank wear of a carbide insert
with cutting parameters (V, f, d) is as follows.

The figure 5.6 shows a relation of cutting velocity versus temperature, at constant
feed at different levels depth of cuts used in experimentation work. The inference that can
be drawn from the above graph is that when we increase the cutting velocity the
temperature keeps on increasing.

Figure 5.7: Relation between Cutting velocity and temperature at feed rate (f = +1)

The figure 5.7 depicts the same trends as figure 5.6, from these trends it’s
depicted that with the increase in velocity of cutting, the temperature raises. These two
graphs are at constant depth of cuts for each curve. The figure 5.8 shows results of
temperature with cutting velocity at constant depth of cuts. It shows temperature increase
with increase in depth of cut.

The figure 5.13 also shows similar results but at depth of cuts (d = +1). The trend
is almost same depicted in other graphs as shown before, that is with increase in the
cutting velocity for some constant value of depth of cut, the tool wear increases.
5.12 CONCLUSIONS
Based on the results presented in previous sections, the following conclusions
have been observed:
1. The hardness increases with increase in distance from the flank edge and with
decrease in the tool-workpiece contact temperature.
2. The change in the tool workpiece contact temperature depends upon the cutting
parameters and it increases with increase in resultant cutting force, but do not follow a
linear trend and thus we can find an optimum set of machining parameters to have a
minimum heat generation at tool-workpiece contact.
3. The flank wear is directly proportional to the resultant cutting force and
approximately follows a linear trend.
4. The flank wear increases with increase in modified cutting tool temperature (due to
increase in the strain rate), but there is a nonlinear trend so we can find an optimum value
of cutting parameters so as to give minimum strain rate, because heat generated increases
with increase in the strain rate.
5. The contact temperature increases with the increase in the cutting velocity, but at
constant cutting velocity, there is a significant increase in the contact temperature with



59
increase in the depth of cut as compared to the increase in the contact temperature with
the increase in the feed rate.
6. The flank wear increases significantly with the increase in the cutting velocity. Also
at constant cutting speed it increases with increase in both feed rate and depth of cut.
Thus finally it can be observed that we must select the cutting parameters, which
are cutting speed, feed rate, and depth of cut, in such a way so as to have the optimum
temperature at the tool tip-workpiece contact because of the heat generated, so that the
minimum tool wear is encountered, and thus we could have the longest tool life and
better machining economy.
5.13 SCOPE FOR FURTHER WORK
With increasing competitiveness as observed in the recent times, manufacturing
systems in the industry are being driven more and more aggressively. So there is always
need for perpetual improvements. Thus for getting still more accurate results we can take
into account few more parameters as given below:
• The transient analysis for the machining operation can be studied.
• The study can also be extended on coated carbide tools, CBN, or other harder tools.
• CNC machines can be used for the experimentation to have the better control of the
process variables and also parameters can be set to the desired accuracy.
• The presently developed system can be used for other conventional as well as
unconventional processes such as milling, drilling.
• The other combinations of machine, cutting tool and work material can be studied.

4 . The accurate prediction of tool wear is important to have a better product quality and dimensional accuracy. In cutting tools the area close to the tool tip is the most important region and conditions at the tool tip must be carefully examined. An empirical relation is used to determine temperature at tool-tip and further Finite Element Method is used to determine the distribution of temperature over the surface of tool and its impact on hardness which is related by an empirical relations. The results obtained have been verified with the available results from literature for the variation of wear with the temperature and thermal softening of carbide tool. if improvements in tool performance are to be achieved The present work involves the study of tool wear caused by the change in hardness of single point cutting tool for a turning operation to predict the tool life in orthogonal cutting based on the heat transfer analysis using Finite Element Method (FEM).ABSTRACT The problem of tool wear monitoring in machining operations. The Experiments were performed with EN-24 steel as workpiece and Carbide uncoated tool bit as a tool material and the flank wear has been measured experimentally. The study shows the effect of Modified temperature due to strain rate on carbide tool to describe the thermal softening of tool material and becomes prone to wear. feed and depth of cut) in thermal analysis for study of the cutting tool wear. The results prescribed demonstrate the significance of cutting parameters (speed. has been an active area of research for quite a long time. The results reveal that by increasing process variables in machining the wear and temperature increases causing thermal softening of tool causing it to wear.

Machining operations comprise a substantial portion of the world’s manufacturing infrastructure. cutting edge blunting. a large amount of research has been carried out in order to optimize cutting process in terms of improving quality. and tool brittle fracture or due to the rise in the interface temperatures. At present. Because of its great economic and technical importance. Although Taylor’s equation gives the simple relationship between tool life and a certain cutting parameters.1 INTRODUCTION Tool wear monitoring/sensing should be one of the primary objectives in order to produce the required end products in an automated industry so that a new tool may be introduced at the instant at which the existing tool has worn out. Tool life equation gives no information about the wear mechanism. e. Cutting tools may fail due to the plastic deformation.g. When tool wear reaches a certain value. The life of the cutting tool comes to an end. Then the cutting tool must be replaced or ground and the cutting process is interrupted. They create about 15% of the value of all mechanical components manufactured worldwide. increasing productivity and lowering cost. it gives only the information about tool life.CHAPTER . vibration and cutting temperature cause surface integrity deteriorated and dimension error greater than tolerance. the prediction of tool wear is performed by calculating tool life according to experiment and empirical tool life equations such as Taylor’s equation or its extension versions. Tool wear influences cutting power. Throughout the world today. For the researcher and tool manufacturer tool wear progress and tool wear profile are also concerned. thus preventing any hazards occurring to the machine or deterioration of the surface finish. Hence tool wear relates to the economic of machining and prediction of tool wear is of great significance for the optimization of cutting process. machining quality. cutting speed. increasing cutting force. The cost and time for tool replacement and adjusting machine tool increases cost and decreases the productivity. But capability of predicting the contributions of various wear mechanism is very helpful for the design of cutting tool material and 10 . tool life and machining cost. This can be achieved only through optimal utilization of both material and human resources.

stress. FEM has become a powerful tool in the simulation of cutting process because various variables in the cutting process such as cutting force. and [19]. In addition. strain. They are in metal-to-metal contact. including those very difficult to detect by experimental method. Therefore a new tool wear prediction method may be developed by integrating FEM simulation of cutting process with tool wear model.1. such tool life equations are valid under very limited cutting conditions. between the chip and work piece.1 TOOL WEAR PHENOMENA Under high temperature. cutting temperature of tool face and normal pressure on tool face. 1. When the tool wear reach certain extent. and it will result in the failure of the cutting tool. Mostly researchers concentrate on the study of wear mechanism and investigate the mathematical relationship between wear due to various wear mechanisms and some cutting process variables such as relative sliding velocity of workpiece material along tool face. Among them.1 TOOL WEAR Cutting tools are subjected to an extremely severe rubbing process. In the recent decades. the tool or edge change has to be replaced to guarantee the ordinary cutting action. when tool geometry is changed. For example.geometry. high sliding velocity and mechanical or thermal shock in cutting area. cutting tools remove the material from the component to achieve the required shape. The situation is further aggravated due to the existence of extreme stress and temperature gradients near the surface of the tool. with the emergency of more and more powerful computer and the development of numerical technique. strain rate. numerical methods such as finite element method (FEM). which 11 . cutting temperature. high pressure. finite difference method (FDM) and artificial Intelligence (AI) are widely used in machining industry. new equation must be established by making experiment. However. etc can be predicted by performing chip formation and heat transfer analysis in metal cutting. During cutting. under conditions of very high stress at high temperature. wears are occurring during the cutting action. Some tool wear equations related to one or several wear mechanisms are also developed. such as Usui’s tool wear equation [15]. 1. cutting tool has normally complex wear appearance. dimension and finish.

At high cutting speed. It conforms to the shape of the chip underside and reaches the maximum depth at a distance away from the cutting edge where highest temperature occurs.consists of some basic wear types such as crater wear. plastic deformation and build-up edge.1: Types of Tool Wear • Crater wear: In continuous cutting. Crater wear and flank wear shown in figure1. thermal crack.2: Behaviour of Flank wear 12 . crater wear is often the factor that determines the life of the cutting tool. for example in turning operation. Figure1. The dominating basic wear types vary with the change of cutting conditions. Crater wear is improved by selecting suitable cutting parameters and using coated tool or ultra-hard material tool. brittle crack.1 are the most common wear types. fatigue crack. Figure 1.1 are the most common wear types [28]. insert breakage. crater wear normally forms on rake face. because the tool edge is weakened by the severe cratering and eventually fractures. Crater wear and flank wear shown in figure1. flank wear.

Due to the high pressure and temperature. 13 . nitride and oxide compounds. delamination wear. Tool wear mechanisms in metal cutting include abrasive wear. • Abrasive wear: Abrasive wear is mainly caused by the impurities within the workpiece material. Severe wear is characterized by considerable welding and tearing of the softer rubbing surface at high wear rate. Adhesion wear occurs mainly at low machining temperatures on tool rake face. Hence the width of the flank wear land “VB” is usually taken as a measure of the amount of wear and a threshold value of the width is defined as tool reshape criterion. such as carbon. diffusion wear. 1. as well as the built-up fragments. • Adhesive wear: The simple mechanism of friction and wear proposed by Bowden and Tabor is based on the concept of the formation of welded junctions and subsequent destruction of these. solution wear. steady wear. and the formation of relatively large wear particles. temperature and vibration. and it is the main cause of the tool wear at low cutting speed. This is a mechanical wear. Among them.2 WEAR MECHANISM In order to find out suitable way to slow down the wear process. showing the initial wear. the surface finish of the sliding surfaces improves. welding occurs between the fresh surface of the chip and rake face because of the chip flowing on the rake face results in chemically clean surface. Figure1. It is found that tool wear is not formed by a unique tool wear mechanism but a combination of several tool wear mechanisms. adhesive wear. adhesive wear. such built up edge (BUE).1. It is responsible for a poor surface finish. etc. a decrease in the dimension accuracy of the tool and an increase in cutting force. many research works are carried out to analyze the wear mechanism in metal cutting. electrochemical wear.2 shows a variation of flank wear rate with cutting time. diffusion wear and oxidation wear are very important. and severe wear periods.• Flank wear: Flank wear is caused by the friction between the newly machined work piece surface and the tool flank face. abrasive wear. oxidation wear.Under mild wear conditions.

• Diffusion wear: Wear is a process of atomic transfer at contacting asperities. iron diffusion is possible. But at high temperature soft oxide layers. which is oxidation wear. (ii) Diffusion of major tool constituents into the work (Chemical element loss): The tool matrix or a major strengthening constituent may be dissolved into the work and chip surfaces as they pass the tool. • Oxidation wear: High temperatures and the presence of air mean oxidation for most metals. this thin layer can be removed by fracture or chipping. carbide or ceramic tools. diffusion and current by isolating the tool and the workpiece. and then taken away by the chip and the workpiece. • • Chemical wear: Corrosive wear (due to chemical attack of a surface) Fatigue wear: Fatigue wear is often a thermo-mechanical combination. A number of workers have considered that the mechanism of tool wear must involve chemical action and diffusion. 14 . With HSS tools. the diffusion of lead into the tool may produce a thin brittle surface layer. It reduces adhesion. WO3. for example Co3O4. which result in high forces and a sudden complete failure of the tool. TiO2. are formed rapidly. Temperature fluctuations and the loading and unloading of cutting forces can lead to cutting edge cracking and breaking. They have demonstrated welding and preferred chemical attack of (W) tungsten carbide in (W-Ti) tungsten-titanium carbides. Intermittent cutting action leads to continual generation of heat and cooling as well as shocks of cutting edge engagement. This flow may produce major changes in the tool geometry. A slight oxidation of tool face is helpful to reduce the tool wear. this may be the prime wear phenomenon. This results in a rapid tool material loss.

Lower the production efficiency. Surface finish (roughness): The surface finish produced in a machining operation usually deteriorates as the tool wears. The cutting forces are normally increased by wear of the tool.

Some of this heat conducts into cutting tool. resulting in high tool temperatures near cutting edge. In machining operations. A cutting operation which is quite free of vibration when the tool is sharp may be subjected to an unacceptable chatter mode when the tool wears. Tools become softer and wear more rapidly by abrasion as temperatures are increased. and in many cases constituents of the tool life may diffuse into the chip or react chemically with the workpiece or cutting fluid. it is necessary to quantify the temperatures which develop during the cutting operation.

It is increasingly important to understand how machining temperature are affected by the process variable involved which are cutting speed. where secondary plastic deformation due to friction between the heated chip and tool takes place. This causes a further rise in the temperature of the chip. the chip thickness decreases and less shear energy is required for chip deformation so the chip is heated less from this deformation. This heat raises the temperature of the chip. • The chip-tool interface zone: The chip-tool interface zone. Part of this heat is carried away by the chip when it moves upward along the tool.

CHAPTER - 2 LITERATURE REVIEW
The problem of tool wear monitoring in machining operations has been an active area of research for quite some time. The machining processes are inherently dynamic in nature due to various factors. Some of them can be mathematically modeled, but others are too uncertain. Thus simplifications are made while modeling the extremely complex machining processes. Research in the field of machining has been primarily done on single point turning process, as it is the basic metal removal processes. Once a model has been developed for turning operation, it can be implemented for other multipoint processes like drilling, milling or grinding. In this work tool wear along with temperature had been selected as the criterion for the process control in turning operation. In recent years, numerical calculating methods have been widely developed in most areas of engineering and have been used to determine the thermal behaviour of cutting tools. In general, the application of finite element and finite difference techniques has been successful, yet still relies heavily on the accuracy of experimentally determined boundary conditions. This chapter deals with the review of the work done on the topic. Firstly the review is on the general analysis of tool, concentrating mainly on prediction of temperature and tool wear. Then the concentration shifts on to second part, which is the review on use of finite element in the thermal analysis of the cutting tool.

2.1 MODELS FOR DETERMINATION OF TEMPERATURE FIELD
Temperature measurement and prediction have been a major focus of machining research for several decades. Throughout the 20th century, much effort has been undertaken into measuring the temperature generated during cutting operations. Interfacial temperatures in machining play a major role in tool wear and can also result in modification to the mechanical properties of the workpiece and cutting tool. Leshock et al [4] presented the results the tool chip interface temperature measurement by the tool work thermocouple technique. Tool chip interface temperature is analyzed under a wide range of cutting condition during turning of 4140 steel alloys and Inconel 718 nickel based alloys with tungsten carbide tools. The obtained experimental results are compared with the predictions based on the Loewen and Shaw’s 24

model. In addition an empirical model for the tool face temperature terms of cutting parameters is established. Finally, the tool chip interface temperature is analyzed with both flank and crater wear during machining of 4140 steel alloys. Sullivan et al [12] presented different methods used for the measurement of temperature of a single cutting tool. Initial experiments conducted involved the simultaneous measurement of forces & temperature. Use of the tool-chip interface as a thermocouple was one of the first methods of estimating interfacial temperatures in machining process. These experiments focused on the use of embedded thermocouples and using the infrared camera to monitor the process. Komanduri et al [13] addresses two fundamental thermal issues of tribology in orthogonal machining with a sharp tool, namely, the nature of the apparent heat partition in the shear plane and the variable heat partition at the chip-tool interface. The distribution of temperature in the chip, the tool, and the work material was determined analytically considering the combined effect of these two heat sources in orthogonal machining. The new analytical model was verified for a wide range of Peclet numbers, using the available experimental data from the literature. Huda et al [14] developed a technique for measuring temperature at the interface between a cutting tool and a chip. A two-color pyrometer with fused fiber coupler was applied to the temperature measurement of the tool-chip interface in dry and wet turning. By using this pyrometer, it is possible to measure the temperature of a very small object without emissivity affecting the results. The temperature distributions on the cutting tool and the work material were analyzed using the finite element method. Good agreement was obtained between the analytical results and experimental ones. Miller et al [21] developed Experimental techniques using modern, digital infrared imaging and successfully applied them during this study to gather cutting tool temperature distributions from orthogonal machining operations. This new process has seemingly overcome many problems associated with past experimental techniques. Ranc et al [23] developed a high-speed broad band visible pyrometer using an intensified CCD camera (spectral range: 0.4 mm–0.9 mm) for the measurement of the machining temperature. The maximum temperature in the chip can reach 730°C and minimal temperature which can be detected is around 550°C. The advantage of the 25

visible pyrometry technique is to limit the temperature error due to the uncertainties on the emissivity value and to have a good spatial resolution (3.6 mm) and a large observation area.

2.2 APPLICATION OF FEM FOR TOOL WEAR RESEARCH
A more promising approach for developing an orthogonal metal cutting model is provided by an advanced numerical discretization scheme, such as the finite element method. This part basically discusses about the application of FEM in predicting the tool temperature and thus estimating the tool wear. Shih et al [1] developed the, methodology using FEM for the simulation of plane– strain orthogonal cutting processes with continuous chip formation. The orthogonal metal cutting experiment was setup on a shaper, and the distributions of the residual stresses of the annealed carbon steel are measured using the X-ray diffraction method. Along with this, they also developed experimental procedures for orthogonal metal cutting and measurement of distributions of residual stresses using the X-ray diffraction method. They formulated a 4 nodes 8 degree of freedom, quadrilateral plane–strain finite element. The finite element formulation was divided in two phases. Only thermal finite element formulation is discussed here. •

By means of combining thermocouple measuring method and finite element (FE) analysis. These process variables depend on tool and workpiece materials.

The hardness increases with increase in distance from the flank edge and with decrease in the tool-workpiece contact temperature. The change in the tool workpiece contact temperature depends upon the cutting parameters and it increases with increase in resultant cutting force.13: Variation of flank wear with cutting velocity at constant depth of cut (d =+1) The figure 5.13 also shows similar results but at depth of cuts (d = +1).07 Flank wear(mm) 0.05 0.00 -0. 3.02 0.08 0. The contact temperature increases with the increase in the cutting velocity. The trend is almost same depicted in other graphs as shown before. The flank wear is directly proportional to the resultant cutting force and approximately follows a linear trend. 5.04 0. but do not follow a linear trend and thus we can find an optimum set of machining parameters to have a minimum heat generation at tool-workpiece contact. because heat generated increases with increase in the strain rate. that is with increase in the cutting velocity for some constant value of depth of cut.50 f = -1 f = +1 Cutting velocity at d=+1 Figure 5. but there is a nonlinear trend so we can find an optimum value of cutting parameters so as to give minimum strain rate.01 0 -1. 4.0. there is a significant increase in the contact temperature with 58 . the following conclusions have been observed: 1. but at constant cutting velocity.06 0.50 -1. the tool wear increases. 2.03 0.50 0.50 1.12 CONCLUSIONS Based on the results presented in previous sections.

and thus we could have the longest tool life and better machining economy. The other combinations of machine. cutting tool and work material can be studied. manufacturing systems in the industry are being driven more and more aggressively. The flank wear increases significantly with the increase in the cutting velocity. 6. 5. CBN. Thus finally it can be observed that we must select the cutting parameters. 59 . and depth of cut. So there is always need for perpetual improvements.increase in the depth of cut as compared to the increase in the contact temperature with the increase in the feed rate. The presently developed system can be used for other conventional as well as unconventional processes such as milling. Also at constant cutting speed it increases with increase in both feed rate and depth of cut. feed rate. The study can also be extended on coated carbide tools.13 SCOPE FOR FURTHER WORK With increasing competitiveness as observed in the recent times. which are cutting speed. in such a way so as to have the optimum temperature at the tool tip-workpiece contact because of the heat generated. drilling. CNC machines can be used for the experimentation to have the better control of the process variables and also parameters can be set to the desired accuracy. Thus for getting still more accurate results we can take into account few more parameters as given below: • • • • • The transient analysis for the machining operation can be studied. or other harder tools. so that the minimum tool wear is encountered.
