Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Experimental and numerical investigations are carried out to study the striation and roughness formation mechanism on the cutting surface in the machining process using an abrasive water jet. The results of two-dimensional numerical simulations which are based on a simple model are compared with experimental results. The agreement between the two is satisfactory. It is also shown that although the surface roughness increases with the distance from the nozzle, the mechanism by which the material is cut and the striations formed is fundamentally the same throughout the kerf.
