Regenerative machine tool chatter is investigated in a nonlinear single-degree-of-freedom model of turning processes. The nonlinearity arises from the dependence of the cutting-force magnitude on the chip thickness. The cutting-force is modeled as the resultant of a force system distributed along the rake face of the tool. It introduces a distributed delay in the governing equations of the system in addition to the well-known regenerative delay, which is often referred to as the short regenerative effect. The corresponding stability lobe diagrams are depicted, and it is shown that a subcritical Hopf bifurcation occurs along the stability limits in the case of realistic cutting-force distributions. Due to the subcriticality a so-called unsafe zone exists near the stability limits, where the linearly stable cutting process becomes unstable to large perturbations. Based on center-manifold reduction and normal form calculations analytic formulas are obtained to estimate the size of the unsafe zone.
