Various aspects of the plastic deformation of metals adjacent to the surfaces of tools or dies are discussed. The influence of thermal conduction between the thin plastic layer and the hot or cold surface of the tool or die is considered, while an approximate analysis is presented of the variation in the overall thickness of the layer at the chip-tool interface in metal cutting.
