    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    This paper presents a new approach for the determination of cutting-force coefficients. The proposed methodology models a practical mechanism for collecting and analysing experimental data. The main advantage of the new method is that it provides the simulation process with instantaneous cutting-force coefficients, which are independent of the cutting operation geometry.
