Optimal abrasive flow rate in abrasive water jet machining

Experimental work to determine the optimal abrasive flow rate for two types of materials of several thicknesses at the given pressure and combination of water nozzle and focusing tube. The criteria is minimum machining costs. Higher abrasive flow rate enables higher machining speed, but also causes higher machining costs per working hour. The former relation is not linear whereas the latter is linear.
