Abstract: Nowadays, an increase on demands of aerospace components has led to implementation of high speed machining (HSM). The principal factors in the performance of aerospace materials are strength-to-weight ratio, fatigue life, fracture toughness, survivability and of course, reliability. However, when HSM is coupled with dry or near dry machining, it will present considerable technical challenges to the manufacturing sector especially when the integrity of the machined surface is concerned. In this investigation, t…
