The development of ultra–precision processes which can achieve nanometre surface finishes and tolerances is now a critical requirement for many applications in medical, electronics and energy industry. Presently, it is very difficult to observe the diverse microscopic physical phenomena occurring in nanometric machining through experiments. The use Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulation has proved to be an effective tool for the prediction and the analysis of these processes at the nanometre scale. The complexity and the cost of experimental investigation have made this approach even more suitable as simulation results sometimes point interesting directions for experimentation. A review of the MD was undertaken, as this method can improve our understanding of nanometric processes and subsequently minimize experimental efforts.
