This paper provides an approach using tensile tests at elevated temperatures to estimate mechanical properties of the work material for both elastic and plastic deformations in a broad range of strain, strain rate, and temperature in machining. The proposed method has been applied to estimate mechanical properties of hardened AISI 52100 steel in hard machining. Tensile testing is shown capable of estimating the mechanical properties of both elastic and plastic regions with large strains at elevated temperatures. Flow stresses at high strain rates in machining can be obtained by extrapolating the data from tensile tests by using the velocity-modified temperature. Flow stress data from tensile and cutting tests is consistent with regard to the velocity-modified temperature. Temperature is the dominant factor of mechanical properties of this material, while the effect of strain rate is secondary. Cutting forces and chip geometry predicted by the 3D FEM simulation of hard turning using the material property data obtained from the developed method agree well with the experimental data.
