Experiment Study on Abrasive Waterjet Machining Mechanisms of Brittle Materials
The erosion process of abrasive waterjet (AWJ) on target material is very complicated and a complete clear understanding about material removal mechanisms in AWJ machining has not been obtained. In this paper, an experiment study on AWJ machining mechanisms of brittle materials is introduced so as to understand the actions of water jet and abrasive particle in material removal process and some experiment evidences of the change of material removal mechanisms have been obtained.
