This paper mainly establishes a two-dimensional model about the YG8 carbide tool turning TC4 titanium alloy on the basis of ABAQUS. The cutting force of the simulation model was verified by the turning experiment, and the relationships of cutting force with cutting speed, feed rate and rake angle of cutting edge in the model were studied. A prediction model of main cutting force related to cutting speed, feed rate and rake angle was obtained by central composite experiment. Studies have shown that the difference between the cutting force acquired by simulation and by experiment was less than 10%; in a certain range, the cutting force increased with the feed rate, the cutting force decreased with the increase of cutting speed and rake angle, and the influence of feed rate to cutting force was most significant.
Key words: ABAQUS / TC4 titanium alloys / cutting force / central composite design
