AdvantEdge is a finite element software package that integrates advanced dynamics, thermo-mechanically coupled finite element numerics and material modelling appropriate for machining processes. AdvantEdge allows users to specify the workpiece material, tool geometry and cutting conditions. It then provides accurate estimates of thermo-mechanical properties of machining processes such as cutting forces, chip morphology, machined surface residual stresses and temperature behavior of the tool and the workpiece. We will use AdvantEclge to investigate two areas of interest in metal cutting: process clamping via crushing of workpiece material and drilling of metal stacks.
