Theoretical Model of Surface Roughness for Polishing Super Hard Materials with Abrasive Waterjet


Article Preview

In this paper, the impact pressure of abrasives acting on the polished materials was deduced by Field Theory and the model of surface roughness for polishing super hard materials with Abrasive Water Jet (AWJ) was established. The model indicates that the surface roughness increases linearly with an increase in the maximum depth of abrasives indenting into materials and that the relationship between the surface roughness and polishing parameters including water pressure, abrasive pressure, the impact angle, the hardness of the polished material, the elastic distortion of abrasive, abrasive size, abrasive density, nozzle diameter and standoff.
