Prediction And Experimental Study On Cutting Forces Of Stepped Austempering Gray Cast Iron Using Artificial Neural Network
A novel stepped austempering process has been widely used for improving of mechanical properties of cast iron.
Although most of the stepped austempering process focused on ductile iron, only minimal study has been carried out in gray
cast iron. In this study, the effects of stepped austempering on the cutting force of gray cast iron. Mathematical model
developed for prediction of cutting force with Artificial Neural Network (ANN). Experimental result showed that stepped
austempering heat treatment significantly influences the cutting force of gray cast iron. In addition, artificial neural network
model provide highly accurate and consistent prediction for all cutting forces.
