Modelling the Depth of Jet Penetration in Abrasive Waterjet Contouring of Alumina Ceramics
Predictive mathematical models for the depth of jet penetration are presented for both straight-slit cutting and contouring by an abrasive waterjet (AWJ). The plausibility and predictive capability of the models are assessed and verified by an experimental investigation when cutting an 87% alumina ceramic. It shows that the predictions of the models are in good agreement with the experimental data.
