2  Silicon Carbide (SiC) is an advanced engineered ceramic and an alternative to semiconducting Silicon (Si) for operation at elevated temperatures and high power applications. Some of SiC’s beneficial properties include: chemical resistance, high temperature resistance, extreme hardness and high stiffness  Hardness of SiC: 26 GPa  The machining of SiC is difficult due to its high hardness and brittle nature.  Ductile mode µ-LAM has been studied to replace grinding and polishing processes and to increase the material removal rates and maintaining the workpiece surface quality

3  In µ-LAM, the laser beam passes through the diamond tool, thus heating the surface just below the tool tip in the chip formation zone SiC Schematic of µ-LAM Diamond tool

4  The ductile material removal can be attributed to a High Pressure Phase Transformation (HPPT) at the tool-chip interface and the resultant phase is metallic or amorphous  The HPPT occurs due to contact between the sharp tool and workpiece at or below critical depth of cut, i.e., below the ductile to brittle transition

5  Silicon Carbide (SiC) is very expensive semiconductor  Measurement of temperatures at nano-scale is practically not possible  Also the rate of heat transfer and pressures on tool and workpiece can be studied  There is a metallic phase at tool chip interface due to high pressure phase transformation Software used: AdvantEdge version 5.4  Commercial software for machining solutions in metals developed by Third Wave Systems Inc.

6  To simulate different heating conditions over a temperature range for studying the laser heating effect  To study the change in chip formation, cutting forces and pressures with changes in heating/temperature conditions

7 Drucker Prager Yield Criterion: …(1) …(2) Where I 1 is first invariant of stress tensor …(3) Where J 2 is second invariant of deviatoric stress tensor Hence initial yield stress is given by: …(4) For uniaxial stress, σ 2 = σ 3 = 0 and also σ c = σ 1 = H= 26 GPa σ t = H/2.2 = 11.82 GPa (for ceramics) Hence, К= 16.25 GPa and Drucker-Prager coefficient (α) = 0.375

11  Tooltip Boundary Condition  Rake and Clearance face Heated Boundary Condition  Workpiece Boundary Condition

12 A thermal boundary condition was provided on the tool tip about 2µm on rake and clearance face from cutting edge

13 A thermal boundary was provided on the workpiece top surface

14 Parameters Values Feed (nm)500 Cutting speed (m/s)1 Width of cut (mm)0.02 Co-efficient of friction0.3 Temperature range of the simulation work: 20° C, 700° C, 1500° C, 2200° C and 2700° C where 1500° C is the thermal cutoff point in the material model. From 20° C till 1500° C, the thermal softening curve has a 3 rd order polynomial fit in the material model From the thermal cutoff point (1500° C) till melting point (2830° C) the curve is linear

15  AdvantEdge does not provide for the direct incorporation of the laser heat source, thus the heating effect is modeled with these thermal conditions  For this study, the crystalline dependency of the brittle behavior of SiC is not included in the model Note: The temperature scale changes in each figure, as the minimum temperature is set slightly above and below the boundary condition temperature
