Modeling and Analysis of the Grinding Parameters
Efficient grinding of structural ceramics requires judicious selection of operating parameters to maximize removal rate while controlling surface integrity. Grinding of ceramics is difficult because of its low fracture toughness, making it very sensitive to cracking. In the present work, experiments were carried out to study the effect of wheel parameters such as grain size and grinding parameters like depth of cut and feed rate on the surface roughness and surface damage. The significance of the grinding parameters on the selected responses is evaluated using analysis of variance. Mathematical statistics like “Minitab” is used to analyzed the grinding conditions for maximum material removal, using a multi-objective function model, by imposing surface roughness, surface force and surface damage constraints. The choice of including manufacturer & apposes constraints on the basis of functional requirements of the component for maximizing the production rate is also embedded in the Mathematical statistics. For the verification of present work, the Mathematical statistics results are compared with experimental work.
