Abstract

Drilling is an indispensable process for many manufacturing industries due to its importance for assembling components. This study presents a 3D finite element modelling (3D FEM) approach for drilling process of aluminium 2024-T3. The 3D model of drilling tools for two facet HSSCo and four facet HSS were generated including their geometries. The simulations were carried out for both drills under different cutting conditions. The numerically obtained thrust forces were compared against experimental results. The tool stress distribution, chip formation and temperature distribution in the chip area were determined numerically. The results confirm the ability and advantage of 3D FE modelling of the drilling process.
