In this paper, a workpiece-fixture layout verification approach with the application of frictional contact and chip removal effects using a finite-element technique, is presented. The objective of the proposed system is to overcome the deficiencies of existing fixture design approaches. Workpiece-fixture. layout verification analysis is carried out for time varying machining forces to ensure that the workpiece will be held against the cutting and clamping forces. The chip removal effect and frictional contact between the workpiece and the fixture elements are taken into account using a material removal approach based on element death technique and nonlinear finite-element analysis. A case study illustrates the application of the proposed approach.
