This paper describes the material flow in shear zone by using a thermo mechanical model. The material is an isotropic, viscoplastic rigid material; its behavior is described by a J–C law. The contact length between the chip and the tool and the temperature distribution at the tool–chip interface which has an important effect on the tool wear. Using the thermo-mechanical model and the temperature friction law, the tangential forces, friction coefficient and contact length on the cutting element as a function of radius, for different feed rate and cutting speed, are obtained. The results of proposed model are compared with experimental results and good agreement is obtained.
