Paper Abstract

Molecular dynamics (MD) analysis has been found to be a powerful tool for understanding the deformation mechanisms of materials at nanometre scales. The basic principles of MD and potential functions used in nanomachining are reviewed in this paper. The cutting mechanism of brittle materials and ductile materials, tool geometry, tool wear and the relation of macro-cutting mechanism and micro-cutting in the field of nanomachining by molecular dynamics simulation are summarized.
