In this master of science thesis, finite element analysis of a turning process with driven and self-propelled rotary tools and a stable triangular turning tool has been done and results are investigated in details additionally these three tool alternatives have been compared. An analysis domain from a cylindrical work piece has been modeled and finite element analysis has been performed under same process parameters with three type of turning tools. In this work DEFORM-3D software has been used as finite element analysis tool. Tool temperatures, tool wear, chip formation and chip profile results have been investigated in details. In results and conclusion section all results which have been obtained from all three analysis, have been compared with each other and comparatively evaluated with some experimental works from literature.
