This paper investigates the structural stability of long boring or milling tools. The tool is modelled by a rotating cantilever beam that is subject to compression and torsion, manifested by semi-tangential torque. The three-dimensional mathematical model is based on Euler–Bernoulli beam theory considering a linear three-dimensional problem. We obtain a dimensionless relationship between the relative importance of rotation, compression, and torsion that reveals the stability boundaries of the system.
