Temperature measurements were made in bovine cortical bone using two cutting burst at 20,000 and 100,000 rpm and two reciprocating saw blades at 20,000 strokes per minute. A combination of feed rates and depths of cuts were investigated for the cutting burs. Cortical temperatures decreased as a result of increases in feed rate, but increased as the depth of cut increased. Temperature increase due to an increase in rotational speed was dependent upon the particular bur. The cutting forces were… CONTINUE READING
