One of the biggest barriers in the formation of surfaces of the thin-walled parts is the difficulties of prediction and prevention of deflections. The research is focused on the use of fluid jet support in processing as the technique to increase material cutting stability. The analysis of existing methods of deviations prevention is made. A preliminary number of simulations are proposed to define dynamic cutting parameters, apply it to the fluid jet simulation, and investigate the influence on the frequency part structure characteristics. The simulation results are allowed to trace the change in the natural frequency of the part and part with jet support. The potential fluid flow speed is established. The degree of the stress caused by directional fluid jet force is calculated. The technique is novel and useful in the sense that it is supported by fluid flow jet that can theoretically be organized on the existing equipment basis. The solution does not significantly affect the characteristics of the equipment structure while saving dimensional parameters. Matching between nozzle diameters and efficiency of fluid jet support is presented. Considerable oscillation amplitude reduction of the thin-walled part was observed using the proposed solution.
