Abstract

Abrasive Water Suspension Jet (AWSJ) is one of the emerging non-traditional machining tools used in machining of brittle, heat sensitive materials and composites. Usually machining is carried out by the AWS jet in the air. Presence of air around the jet may lead to jet expansion which results in increased kerf width and surface roughness. In the present research work an attempt has been made to investigate the effect of various process parameters on kerf width and surface roughness using AWSJ submerged in water while machining of Glass Fiber Reinforced Plastic (GFRP) composite material. The experimental results indicate that, the surface roughness decreases by 6% and the top kerf width decreases by 3% in under water machining as compared to that of free air machining.
