Influences of cutting factors and nozzle design on abrasive water jet cutting performance
"Researchers have done plenty of work on abrasive waterjet cutting under varying levels of the different cutting factors. And yet, the relationship betweens those factors and the parameters of cutting performance are not fully understood. One method to help understanding the inter-relationship of the factors and their outcomes is by using a design of experiment that includes factorial design. However, few investigators have used factorial design to conduct experiments, and thus to compare cutting performance of commercially available abrasive waterjet nozzle assemblies. Therefore, in this research we used a simple factorial design to design an experimental combination that would allow us to conduct a smaller number of experiments, but which would cover all the factors needed to define the relationship - pressure, abrasive feed rate, and nozzle design."--Introduction, page 2.
