This paper presents a time-domain semi-analytical method for stability analysis of milling in the framework of the differential quadrature method. The governing equation of milling processes taking into account the regenerative effect is formulated as a linear periodic delayed differential equation (DDE) in state space form. The tooth passing period is first separated as the free vibration duration and the forced vibration duration. As for the free vibration duration, the analytical solution is available. As for the forced vibration duration, this time interval is discretized by sampling grid points. Then, the differential quadrature method is employed to approximate the time derivative of the state function at a sampling grid point within the forced vibration duration by a weighted linear sum of the function values over the whole sampling grid points. The Lagrange polynomial based algorithm (LPBA) and trigonometric functions based algorithm (TFBA) are employed to obtain the weight coefficients. Thereafter, the DDE on the forced vibration duration is discretized as a series of algebraic equations. By combining the analytical solution of the free vibration duration and the algebraic equations of the forced vibration duration, Floquet transition matrix can be constructed to determine the milling stability according to Floquet theory. Simulation results and experimentally validated examples are utilized to demonstrate the effectiveness and accuracy of the proposed approach.
