© 2021, Springer Nature Switzerland AG.The fundamental material removal mechanism is central to understanding the machining process of metal matrix composites and improving such materials’ machinability. Numerical models have been used extensively in the investigation of the machining process. It offers many advantages over experimental methods, particularly for examining the micro-scale phenomena that are hard to observe through experiments. This chapter will focus on the most widely used modelling method—finite element (FE) modelling. It starts from an overview of FE modelling on machining of MMCs. Then the general finite element model formulation is introduced. Finally, a case study using FE modelling on the cutting mechanism of Mg-MMCs reinforced with micro-sized and nano-sized particles.
