This paper studies the effect of varying machining parameters in turning on surface roughness and material removal rate (m.r.r.) for ±30° filament wound glass fibre reinforced polymers (GFRP) in turning operations using coated tungsten carbide inserts under dry cutting conditions. The paper describes the development of an empirical model for turning GFRP utilising factorial experiments. Second order predictive model covering speed, feed, depth of cut and tool nose radius has been developed at 95% confidence interval for surface roughness and material removal rate. Contour plots of the surface roughness and m.r.r. for different machining conditions have been generated from the empirical equations. Overlaid contour graph help in obtaining iso-value of roughness for different values of m.r.r.
