STC C - 2017 Annual report

In 2017, the Scientific Technical Committee Cutting STC “C” continued its dedicated work with respect to processes and techniques used to shape components by material removal under the leadership of the current officers:
Chair: R. M’Saoubi, Vice Chair: D. Biermann, Secretary: S. Melkote.

The group held two meetings in 2017: On February 16th in Paris, France and August 25th in Lugano, Switzerland.

In 2017, STC “C” continued its cooperative working group effort launched in 2016 to address specific aspects of friction and material constitutive data used in modelling of machining. Both working groups got off to a strong start in their efforts and presented their progress at the two meetings. The recommendations made by the two working groups are expected to advance our understanding of the advantages and limitations of friction and material constitutive models reported in the literature. In doing so, they will provide guidance to researchers and industry practitioners regarding which models to use for a specific work material. The efforts of the two working groups complements and extends the 2017 STC “C” Keynote paper.
In addition, a number of technical topics were presented and discussed in the two STC “C” meetings. These presentations are listed below. New guidelines for organizing STC meetings put forth by the CIRP Council in 2016 were followed in organizing both meetings of STC “C”.
