Study Findings from SRM University Broaden Understanding of Mechanical Engineering (Multiobjective Optimization of ELID Grinding Process Using Grey Relational Analysis Coupled with Principal Component Analysis)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Journal of Engineering -- Research findings on Mechanical Engineering are discussed in a new report. According to news reporting originating from Tamil Nadu, India, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "Carbon nanotube (CNT) mixed grinding wheel has been used in the electrolytic in-process dressing (ELID) grinding process to analyze the surface characteristics of AISI D2 Tool steel material. CNT grinding wheel is having an excellent thermal conductivity and good mechanical property which is used to improve the surface finish of the work piece."

Our news editors obtained a quote from the research from SRM University, "The multiobjective optimization of grey relational analysis coupled with principal component analysis has been used to optimize the process parameters of ELID grinding process. Based on the Taguchi design of experiments, an L9 orthogonal array table was chosen for the experiments. The confirmation experiment verifies the proposed that grey-based Taguchi method has the ability to find out the optimal process parameters with multiple quality characteristics of surface roughness and metal removal rate. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) has been used to verify and validate the model."

According to the news editors, the research concluded: "Empirical model for the prediction of output parameters has been developed using regression analysis and the results were compared for with and without using CNT grinding wheel in ELID grinding process."
