The machining process modeling software allows researchers to run simulations of real world situations without the costs and risks of operating the machining tool and mining a work piece or cutting tool.We ran several simulations with combinations of high speed steel, carbide, and cubic-boron-nitride for our tool materials, and 1045 steel, 15-5PH, or Inconel 718 for workpiece material options. The numerical simulations or experiments assumed physical, mechanical, and thermal properties representative of work-piece materials and tool material. Cutting forces were determined in the numerical simulations.
