Surface Characteristics and Roughness Prediction of TC4 Titanium Alloy in High Speed Grinding


Article Preview

This paper reports a systematic investigation of high speed grinding of hard-to-machining of titanium alloys. The ground surfaces were characterized using scanning electron microscopy, and the effects of different grinding parameters on roughness were discussed. A numerical model was established to predict surface roughness based on the evolutionary neural network optimized by Genetic Algorithm (GA). The modeled results were in good agreement with the experimental results.
