Original Paper


Modeling of manufacturing processes and especially machining has proven to be particularly demanding, due to the complex phenomena occurring, leading to the necessity of employing special material and contact models, developing the appropriate thermo-mechanical coupling, and determining the chip forming mechanism and final morphology. Finite element method (FEM) models are proven to be adequate for metal cutting simulations up to some extent but still exhibit several shortcomings. During the past few years, a shift towards meshless methods was noticed, in order to avoid the deficiencies of FEM models. In the present work, a thorough review of the most important meshless methods employed for the modeling of machining processes is presented. After a concise description of each method, further discussions are conducted with a view to illustrate the strengths and weaknesses of each method, highlight its capabilities towards more reliable simulations, as well as propose potential future applications.
