How will strain-to-failure affect machining process? I know a higher strain-to-failure would lead to longer chips.
I assume that can also lead to built-up edge since the material tends to be gummy.
I also think higher strain-to-failure increases plastic energy region, which would make machining harder. Basically, specific energy is partially determined by plastic energy, and higher specific energy means a harder material.
I wonder if you can add anything to it or verify my thoughts. Thx
