Machining is the most widely used process inmanufacturing, and tool wear plays a signicant role inmachining eciency and eectiveness. There is a continu-ous requirement to manufacture high-quality products ata lower cost. Many past researches show that variations intool geometry aect the cutting forces signicantly. The in-crease in cutting forces leads to excessive vibrations in thesystem, giving a poor surface nish to the machined prod-uct. In this work, a 2D coupled thermo-mechanical modelis developed using Abaqus/Explicit to predict the cuttingforces during turning of mild steel. Johnson–Cook materialmodel along with damage model has been used to denethe material behavior. Coulomb’s friction model is consid-ered for dening the interaction between the tool and thework piece. Metal cutting process is simulated for dierentsets of cutting conditions and compared with experimen-tal results. The nite element method results correlate wellwith the experimental results.
