 Advanced engineering materials such as polymers, ceramics,
composites, and superalloys play an ever increasing important role in
modern manufacturing industries, especially, in aircraft, automobile,
cutting tools, die and mold making industries.
 Higher costs are associated with machining of these materials.
 Unconventional machining processes have been developed in response
to new and challenging machining requirements.
 Generally these processes are characterized by low value of material
removal rate (MRR) and high power consumption.
 Therefore effective, efficient, and economic utilization of capabilities of
these processes necessitates selection of optimum process parameters.

 A composite material is a combination of two or more chemically
distinct and insoluble phases; its properties and structural performance
are superior to those of the constituents acting independently .
 Composite materials have found increasingly wider applications in
aircraft, space vehicles, offshore structures, piping, electronics,
automobiles, boats and sporting goods.
 The word composite in the term composite material signifies that two
or more materials are combined on a macroscopic scale to form a useful
third material. The key is the macroscopic examination of a material
wherein the components can be identified by the naked eye.

  01ü The primary phase, having a
continuous character, is called matrix. Matrix is
usually more ductile and less hard phase. It holds the
dispersed phase and shares a load with it.
  & 21| 31,4The second
phase (or phases) is imbedded in the matrix in a
discontinuous form. This secondary phase is called
dispersed phase. Dispersed phase is usually stronger
than the matrix, therefore it is sometimes called
reinforcing phase.

 Fiber reinforced plastics (FRP) consists of fibers in a plastic matrix.
Commonly used fibers are glass, graphite, aramids and boron. These
fibers are strong and stiff and they have high specific strength and
specific stiffness. However, they are brittle and abrasive, lack toughness
and can degrade chemically exposed to atmosphere. On the other hand,
plastic matrix is less strong and stiff but it is tougher than fibers. The
percentage of fibers (by volume) in reinforced plastics usually ranges
between 10% and 60%. When more than one type of fiber is used in
reinforced plastic, the composite is called hybrid which have better
properties but are more costly.

 Ultrasonic machining is a non
traditional machining process. It
uses water based abrasive slurry
which is flooded in machining
zone, to remove the material from
the work piece. A tool of desired
shape vibrates at an ultrasonic
frequency (19-25 KHz) and
amplitude of 15-50 microns over
the work piece. Generally the tool
is pressed downward with a feed
force. As tool vibrates over the
workpiece, the abrasive particles
act as indenters and indent both the
work piece and the tool. Due to this
indentation and subsequent crack
initiation, propagation and brittle
fracture the material is removed

from the work piece.

 It is a method to optimize multiple performance
characteristics by combining grey relational analysis and
fuzzy logic.
 In grey relational analysis, experimental data are first
normalized between 0 and 1.
 Next, the grey relational coefficients are calculated from
the normalized data.
 Further, Fuzzy logic is used to fuzzify grey relational
coefficients and then transform them into a single grey
fuzzy reasoning grade.

  ü Investigated the ultrasonic abrasion of different work
piece materials - alumina, zirconia, quartz, glass, ferrite and LiF ±
by using a stationary ultrasonic machine. xperiments were
conducted using a rectangular shaped cutting tool and SiC particles
with mean grain size of 15ȝm. The machined surfaces were
characterized by surface profilometry and scanning electron
1. It was concluded that in the case of alumina, zirconia and quartz,
the rates of material removal decrease with the depth of machining.
The rate of material removal remained constant for the others
2. The micrographs showed that brittle microcracking was the
primary mechanism involved with material removal.

 wuist and Schreiber (1996) investigated the material removal rate in
ultrasonic machining of several different ceramic materials. Results showed
that for tougher work materials, the MRR observed was quite low as
compared to the hard and brittle materials. However, the surface quality
obtained (in terms of finish) was found to be superior for tough materials.
 Jianxin and Taichiu (2002) investigated the effect of properties and
microstructure of work material on MRR in USM of alumina based
ceramic composites. MRR was reported to be low while machining
composites of higher fracture toughness such as whisker-reinforced
composites. The particle reinforced composites yielded higher values of
MRR on account of their low fracture toughness.

Following facts about machining of composites have been observed in the
 Although in many applications, composites are cured to final shape, machining
can be required at product stage.
 As the application fields of FRP composites expands, the opportunity of
machining has increased for its fabrication.
 The mechanism behind the machining of FRP composites is quite different
from that of metals and it brings about many undesirable results such as rapid
tool wear, rough surface finishes and a defective sub surface layer with cracks
and delamination.
 Most composites are very poor thermal conductors. During machining, heat can
build up at the cutting edge of the tool.
 In traditional drilling, due to anisotropy and the lamination of composite
materials, delamination and splintering at hole edge often ocuurs*

 It is found from the literature that little work has been done on
ultrasonic machining of composites.
 In fact, no work was found related to the ultrasonic drilling of GFRP
 No research work has been reported related to application of grey fuzzy
logic optimization technique in ultrasonic machining, till date.
 Conventional processes are still used for machining of composites but
the capability of non conventional machining is yet to be explored to
address certain issues like surface quality and productivity.
 Microstructure aspects of the machined FRP composites samples such
as surface topography are still to be properly investigated to assess the
extent of damage after machining.

44 4 4
 The objective of the work is to investigate the effect of
slurry type, slurry concentration, abrasive size and
power rating of the ultrasonic machine on the material
removal rate, tool wear rate and surface roughness of
the machined surface and to model these process
parameters involved in the ultrasonic machining
