Evaluation of Surface Integrity of Multi-stacked Glass Interplyed with Flax Laminate by Abrasive Waterjet Machining

Part of the Springer Proceedings in Materials book series (SPM,volume 8)

Abstract

This article presents an experimental investigation of surface integrity on glass/flax stacking layered composite machining using an abrasive waterjet energy process. Experimentation variables are SOD-standoff distance, HP-hydraulic pressure, and TR-traverse rate. As to conduct experimentation, the central composite design module (CCD) was employed. The experimentation assessment is to make an effective process parameter selection for surface integrity. Surface unevenness was predicted by using the RSM-based mathematical model. Analysis of variance was done for measuring relative weightage of process variables which affect the surface roughness. From the experiment, pressure was found to be the highest influencing variable for surface roughness. It was found Ra was continuously decreasing with an increase in hydraulic pressure energy. It also reduced with decreasing SOD and TR. Scanning electron microscope (SEM) image reveals the roughness variations along the cutting surface of the stacked laminate.
