Genetic Algorithm Based Optimization of Material Removal Rate of Abrasive Waterjet Cutting of Polymer Composites

Pankaj Balkrishna Tambe, Mukul Shukla


In this paper an empirical model for material removal rate (MRR) of abrasive waterjet (AWJ) cutting of polymer matrix composites has been developed based on experiment conducted. The MRR is optimized using Genetic Algorithm (GA) for the carbon/epoxy reinforced composite with a constraint on surface roughness. The GA based approach on varying the process parameters, gives maximum value of MRR.
