Abstract
"This Small Business Innovative Research Phase I project will investigate and deliver a validated software modeling and analysis capability specifically for the machining of ceramic materials. Industry currently lacks the knowledge and ability to modelmachining and associated material removal processes in these materials. The proposed innovation will allow customers to study, through simulation and process modeling, the manufacturing conditions inherent to the machining of ceramic materials. Thisinnovation will lead to potentially many new applications of ceramic components for automotive, aerospace and machine components. Industry will benefit economically through significantly reduced testing trials, improved productivity, lower componentcosts, increased component quality and expanded manufacturing capability. The core research of the project is to implement and validate a constitutive modeling environment specifically for ceramic materials. The baseline modeling environment will beThird Wave Systems AdvantEdge software product, which will then provide a strong commercialization path for the technology to industry. The commercial applications for the proposed innovation are primarily to provide manufacturing professionals ananalytical modeling tool for ceramic machining processes. Such capability will provide large economic benefits through reduced testing trials, improved component quality and capabilities, and lower costs to
