Abstract

Using fibre reinforced polymers (FRP) is increasing across many industries. Although FRP are laid-up in the near-net shape, several cutting operations are necessary to meet quality and dimensional requirements. Modelling of cutting is essential to understand the physics of the cutting phenomena and to predict quality and cost of products. This paper aims at reviewing the current practice in modelling of cutting FRP including analytical, numerical, mechanistic and empirical approaches, with emphasis on analytical models of cutting forces and delamination. Processes detailed include orthogonal cutting, drilling, milling and turning. Finally, advances in machining of metal-composite stacks are presented.
