This study aims to identify the coefficients of Marusich’s constitutive equation (MCE) for the aluminum AA7075-T651. Material constants were identified inversely form orthogonal machining tests and from dynamic tests. The proposed material model was successfully implemented in a finite element model (FEM) to simulate the high speed machining of the aluminum AA7075-T6. Deform 2D® software was used. A reasonable agreement between predictions and experiments was obtained. The comparison was based on cutting forces, chip morphology, and tool/chip contact length.
