What is the chip thickness ratio?

In a machining process, a sharp tool cuts through some workpiece, generally by skimming along its surface. The "depth of cut" is the measurement of how far beneath the surface of the workpiece the tool is penetrating. The "chip thickness" is the thickness of the material being cut away. One might think that the thickness of the removed material would be equal to the depth of cut, and sometimes it is. In that case, the chip thickness ratio is 1.0. However, depending on many other factors (cutting tool geometry, material properties, etc.), sometimes the chip will be thicker or thinner than the depth of cut, due to deformation of the chip as it is removed. This change of thickness as the chip material is being removed is defined as the "chip thickness ratio."

When you cut your hair does it become thicker?

No, it doesn't. Shorter hair often seems thicker so, when you cut your hair it may feel thicker, but it's not. Also when the ends of your hair are even this makes your hair feel thicker.

What are machining parameters?

speed, feed and depth of cut

Why the machining of brittle material is easy than ductile material?

Very ductile material will often smear rather than cut during machining operations. Less ductile material (more brittle) will cut more easily.

How deep hydro Abrasive Water jet machining can cut?

That depends on what you are looking to do. The Grand Canyon was essentially cut with this process, after all.The limits to depth of cut for abrasive waterjet cutting and machining are not so much real limits, but it gets slower and slower the deeper you go / the farther from the nozzle the cut is.The thicker you go, the slower, and it is an exponential function, so twice as thick is more than twice as slow. The equation for this can be approximately expressed as "Velocity = (1/Thickness^1.15)"If you are talking about the realm of being practical, then here are some ball-park numbers:Steel: Starts to become impractical at about 3" (75mm) thick, depending on the shape. Some people cut up to maybe 12" thick, but rarely is that practical.Aluminum: About 1.5 times thicker than steel.Titanium: It cuts about the same as aluminum, though people often cut thicker because titanium is so expensive that waiting a long time in order to have the advantage of cutting with a narrow slit, and thus saving material, can be a huge money saver even though the cutting may be slow.Stone: Most stone cut with this technology is done to thicknesses of maybe up to 3", though it is quite reasonable to cut even thicker if you are willing to wait. The primary application here is granite and marble flooring and countertops.It really is a question of "how long are you willing to wait / how much money are you willing to spend in consumables and machine time".For mining applications people can cut thicker by cutting in, removing rock, cutting deeper, removing rock, etc. There are a lot of mining applications that I am not very familiar with that cut quite thick.Hope this helps.
