TiAlN thin films are used commercially in the cutting tool industry as wear protection of the inserts. During cutting, the inserts are subjected to high temperatures (~ 900 °C and sometimes higher). The objective of this work is to simulate the material behavior at such high temperatures. TiAlN has been studied experimentally at least for two decades, but… CONTINUE READING
