Many experiments have been conducted to study various types of outputs (such as material removal rate, material removal mechanisms, cutting force, surface roughness, wheel wear, and edge chipping) while rotary ultrasonic machining (RUM) of different workpiece materials. However, literature review has revealed that there is no reported study on wheel wear while RUM of titanium alloys. This paper reports experimental investigations on the wheel wear mechanisms in RUM of a titanium alloy. The types of wheel wear mechanisms observed include: attritious wear, grain pullout, diamond grain cracking and fracture, metal bond cracking and fracture.
