Abstract:Composite when machined with conventional technique often results in fibre damage, interlaminate failure, poor hole quality and high tool wear rate. The flexibility and cool cutting characteristics of the AWJ make it an important tool for cutting applications of new materials such as composites. It has been shown that using AWJ cutting with optimal parameters for Bakelite, interlayer GFRP and normal GFRP can be a viable and effective alternative with good kerf quality and few problems such as thermal effects, … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
