DURAN, O; RODRIGUEZ, N y CONSALTER, L.A. Automatic Definition of the Cutting Tool Geometry using Genetic Algorithms. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2008, vol.19, n.2, pp. 51-58. ISSN 0718-0764. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642008000200007.
This paper presents the application of an evolutionary algorithm using Matlab to obtain the optimum main angles of the cutting geometry of a machining tool. The optimization method considered the non linear model of Kaldor and Venuvinod. Different algorithm configurations were tested using data obtained from the literature. Several simulations were carried out to validate the performance of the algorithm and to show the usefulness of the method employed. It is concluded that that the proposed approach shows to be stable and coherent in the results for the cases studied.
