A finite element method involving Johnson-Cook material model and fracture criterion was used to simulate the cutting temperature distribution on tool rake face during high speed machining AISI 1045 hardened steel using commercial finite element software ABAQUS which can preferably handle such strongly non-linear problems and allow the definition of complex contact conditions. The simulation shows that the highest temperature region is not at the tool tip but is located at certain distance from tool tip, and the comparison between simulation and experiment shows good consistency. Therefore, this finite element simulation method presented in this paper can be use to predict the temperature field distribution accurately during high speed machining hardened steel.
