Abstract

In this paper a genetic algorithm based multi-objective optimization approach is applied in order to predict the optimal machining parameters for the end milling process of aluminium alloy 6061 T6 combined with minimum quantity lubrication (MQL) conditions using waterbased TiO2 nanofluid as cutting fluid. The optimization is carried out employing a parametric model (in terms of input cutting parameters, i.e., cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut, MQL flow rate and % volume concentration of nanofluid) and exploiting the capabilities of the MOGA-II algorithm applied to the constrained machining problem. The objective functions selected to optimize are: to minimize the surface roughness; to maximize the material removal rate; and to minimize the flank wear of the cutting tool. The output of the optimization includes several alternative optimal solutions, i.e., Pareto frontier, and the best compromised configuration of the cutting parameters is selected subject to weighted preference
