In this paper, the effects and the optimization of machining parameters on surface roughness in the grinding of 6061Al-SiC25P (MMCs) specimen are investigated. In the grinding process, a machining parameter, such as hardness of the specimen, flow rate of the coolant and depth of cut while machining were chosen for evaluation by the response surface methodology. By response surface methodology, a complete realization of the process parameters and their effects were achieved. The variation of surface roughness with machining parameters was mathematically modeled using response surface methodology. Finally, experimentation was carried out to identify the effectiveness of the proposed method.
