Figure 3

Schematic diagram of the three cutting regions, where the analytical force expression can be obtained as (top) (a) case one or (b) case two. Green regions represent the portion of the workpiece. Diagonal black lines represent the cutting edge of the tool. The two examples in the bottom part are the current cutting regions.
