Abstract—This paper presents a two dimensional machining model allowing the simulation of cutting force including the cutting process damping in dynamic circular milling process. The cutting forces obtained through simulation model are compared with experimental results. And a discussion of the effect of various milling parameters on cutting force, such as cutting speed, feed rate, radial depth of cut, tool diameter and tool helix angle, in circular peripheral milling process will be presented. 

Index Terms—cutting force, cutting damping process, circular peripheral milling, numerical simulation.
