Abstract

Efficient grinding of high performance metal matrix composites can be achieved through proper selection of grinding process parameters to maximise metal removal rate and to improve surface integrity. Lowering the grinding costs by using faster metal removal rates is constrained primarily by the surface and sub surface damage which leads to surface quality degradation. Hence this paper deals with study on effect of grinding process parameters on metal removal rate (MRR) and surface roughness on surface grinding of Al6061-SiC composites using Taguchi’s design of Experiments. Further by Analysis of Variance, a complete realization of the grinding parameters and their effects were achieved. The variation of metal removal rate and surface roughness with grinding process parameters was mathematically modelled using response surface methodology. Finally the developed model is validated with the set of experiments. It is observed that developed model is in close agreement with the experimental results
