The effect of work surface slope (rate of change of undeformed chip thickness) on machining forces has been measured. The results of these experiments are used to develop equations for the cutting and thrust components of the resultant tool force during wave removing. It is found that the work surface slope effect gives rise to a significant out-of-phase component of the oscillating tool force which should not be neglected in stability analyses.
