Simulation is essential to help designing a cutting tool or selection of a milling cutter. This paper presents an approach of detailed modeling of face milling operation. Theoretical cutter trajectory has been considered. Cutting force components and cutting power consumption of face milling for linear path of cutter have also been modeled. An algorithm for this purpose has been evolved in this work. Validation of angle relationship previously investigated in machining has been shown. Detail plots of dynamic rake angle, instantaneous feed, cutting force components, cutting power with respect to time are established theoretically. Some relevant data have been assumed like material property, cutting tool nomenclature, etc., for showing graphical presentations. Simulation results obtained in this work have been compared with the experimental data available in a published literature. Simulated results from the proposed model using Oxley angle relationship are found to be quite close to the experimental results already reported.
