Abstract: Recently, the finite element simulation technology has been widely applied in machining simulation and has played an irreplaceable role in the investigations of machining mechanism of metal and composite materials, optimization of cutting parameters,etc. The importance of finite element simulation, commonly used software and material constitutive model were introduced. The latest research progress of the finite element simulation of cutting at home and abroad was summarized, including the simulation of chip morphology, the simulation of cutting force and cutting temperature, tool wear simulation, the machined surface integrity, simulation of the effect of multi-steps cutting on cutting process and finite element simulation of cutting process of composites. A preliminary forecast on the future development direction of finite element simulation was made.

Key words: finite element simulation, constitutive model, cutting force and cutting temperature, tool wear, surface integrity
