Title: Developing Lathing Parameters for PBX 9501

Abstract

This thesis presents the work performed on lathing PBX 9501 to gather and analyze cutting force and temperature data during the machining process. This data will be used to decrease federal-regulation-constrained machining time of the high explosive PBX 9501. The effects of machining parameters depth of cut, surface feet per minute, and inches per revolution on cutting force and cutting interface were evaluated. Cutting tools of tip radius 0.005 -inches and 0.05 -inches were tested to determine what effect the tool shape had on the machining process as well. A consistently repeatable relationship of temperature to changing depth of cut and surface feet per minute is found, while only a weak dependence was found to changing inches per revolution. Results also show the relation of cutting force to depth of cut and inches per revolution, while weak dependence on SFM is found. Conclusions suggest rapid, shallow cuts optimize machining time for a billet of PBX 9501, while minimizing temperature increase and cutting force.
