Abstract
A numerical model was developed that predicts topography and surface roughness in ball-end milling processes, based on geometric tool–workpiece intersection. It allows determining surface topography as a function of feed per tooth and revolution, radial depth of cut, axial depth of cut, number of teeth, tool teeth radii, helix angle, eccentricity and phase angle between teeth. It determines profile roughness parameters, as well as areal roughness parameters such as average roughness Sa, maximu...
