Discrete Particle Reinforced Composites have tremendous engineering applications due to their enhanced mechanical and physical properties. However, the applications of DPRCs are limited by their poor machinability. Highly nonlinear behaviour and the complex relationship between deformation and temperature fields, machining DPRCs is one of the important challenges in manufacturing process. Finite element method (FEM)is a powerful tool to predict cutting process variables, which are difficult to obtain with experimental methods. This paper deals with the application of quasi static Finite Element Method to investigate the mechanics of orthogonal cutting of Graphite Particle Reinforced Lead Composite. This study is based on the concepts of orthogonal cutting, chip separation criterion and Lagrange formulation without considering the temperature fields. Commercially available FEAsoftware ANSYS is used to obtain the stress distribution. A discussion is also made on stress distribution and the affecting parameters
