This article surveys the advances of molecular dynamics (MD) simulation in the research of ultrafine machining and related technologies. Modeling methods, including interatomic potentials and boundary conditions, are addressed. Algorithm strategies for MD simulations are discussed. By applying simulations with Tersoff potential, a case study of the material removal mechanism of the polishing based on coupling vibrations of liquid (PCVL) is presented.
