It's my 1st post, i am greeting you all from Turkey.
My problem is I am trying to simulate a 3d turning operation in which i machine an aluminum workpiece with a steel tool. First I model it with autodyn and then with ansys ls dyna. Autodyn result was close to reality however I could not achieve a similar result with LS-dyna. All parameters were identical.
With ls dyna tool go into the workpiece material and make it stretch. What I expected was that plastic deformation and chip removal.
I greatly appreciate any feedbacks.

I moved your post to the Structural Mechanics category where it might get more traction.
Coming to your question, what are the erosion criteria in your LS-DYNA model? Can you double check this and post the analysis settings for both simulations? Please see this discussion on the machining process.

Thank you for your quick reply, you addressed the problem well that I dont have any erosion criteria in LS-DYNA. How can I add it?

You can either include have failure criteria defined in your material model (i.e., use of *MAT_24) or you can insert a command snippet in WB LS-DYNA and use *MAT_ADD_EROSION to define the failure of the material, something like:
$# mid excl mxpres mneps effeps voleps numfip ncs
** 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0 1.0 0.001
$# mnpres sigp1 sigvm mxeps epssh sigth impulse failtm
0.0 0.0 0.0 0.1 0.0 0.0 0.0 0.0
The above criteria specifies failure based on a max. a principal strain of 0.1. Now you need to find the correct material ID and input it where the ** is. You might have to write out the input deck(input.k) first to find this. One other way to estimate this is if you have 4 bodies in the Geometry object of the structure tree, and you want to apply failure to the 3rd body in it (from the top) its mid would typically be 3. Once you determine this, you command object should look something like this:
Next, you need to specify eroding contact in your simulation as well:
Hope this helps.
