Mechanics and Modeling of Chip Formation in Machining of MMC



Metal matrix composites (MMCs) offer high strength-to-weight ratio, high stiffness and good damage resistance over a wide range of operating conditions, making them an attractive option in replacing conventional materials for many engineering applications. Typically the metal matrix materials of MMCs are aluminum alloys, titanium alloys, copper alloys and magnesium alloys, while the reinforcement materials are silicon carbide, aluminum oxide, boron carbide, graphite etc. in the form of fibers, whiskers and particles. This chapter covers the mechanics of chip formation during machining of MMCs and various modeling techniques. Especially, modeling techniques dealing with cutting force, chip morphology, temperature and subsurface damage are covered.
