This paper aims to explain the size-effect in the Primary Deformation Zone (PDZ) in machining using strain gradient plasticity theory. Considering a parallel-sided shear zone configuration, models are formulated for the evaluation of strain gradient, density of geometrically necessary dislocations, shear strength and the specific shear energy. The analysis of deformation in the PDZ shows that the length of the shear plane represents the fundamental material length scale governing the size-effect. It also provides an estimate of the lower bound on the size-effect observed in the specific shear energy. The general trends predicted by the model are shown to agree well with the experimental values obtained from the literature.
