The results of cutting force measurements when machining materials which do not form a sizable unstable built-up-edge are compared with the results of a theoretical analysis. This analysis, based partly on the use of circular cylindrical surfaces of velocity discontinuity around the base of the tool, yields specific energy values which are uniquely determined by the value of the undeformed chip thickness in relation to the tool edge radius.
