Abstract

A co-continuous ceramic composite (C4) was manufactured by gravity infiltration. The effect of varying machining parameters namely, speed, feed and depth of cut during end milling of C4, on the multi-responses of surface roughness, tool wear and depth of cut was investigated using response surface methodology. Non-linear regression models were generated and optimal machining parameters were determined using desirability analysis. Confirmation experiments performed, validated the models with a ± 5 % error in prediction.
