PARAMETRIC OPTIMIZATION OF AL SILICON CARBIDE BY TAGUCHI METHOD
Aluminum-silicon carbide composites have increasingly widened their use due to merits of processing, high specific strength and modulus of elasticity while carrying good deformability and conductivity comparable to metals. In addition to its use in structural components for high performance application, such as aerospace vehicles and racing automobiles. Aluminum-silicon carbide composites are difficult to machine by conventional methods. Short tool life, sub-surface damage and high cost are the major issues associated with their conventional machining. In view of this, electrical discharge machining promises to be an effective technique to machine these materials in certain situations. This paper gives an overview of c Aluminum-silicon carbide composite materials, machining of Aluminum-silicon carbide composites and surface characteristics due to EDM.
