Since the shear stress is the main parameter influencing the energy requirement in machining, the estimation of this stress remains one of the principal problems in the theory of chip formation. An insight in the behavior of the shear stress can be obtained by considering the process of plastic deformation from the viewpoint of dislocation theory. The theory is developed for high strain rate processes and very large strains.
