Abstract

The temperature encountered in a metal cutting operation is considered the most important factor to the proper functioning of a cuttingtool. Of the experimental methods available to measure cutting temperatures, most are highly inaccurate or involve cumbersome experimental setups. Analytical models have been developed to determine average interface temperatures and temperature distributions of the interface area. At present these models are based on over-generalized assumptions and have not been verified experimentally. This thesis shows the development of an analytical model for determining the interface temperatures when using a relaxation technique.
