Abstract: In this study an experimental investigation of effects of cutting parameters on surface roughness during drilling of silicon carbide particulate reinforced aluminium matrix composite material under dry condition was carried out. Cutting speed , feed rate and % SiC in aluminium matrix composites were chosen as cutting parameters. The experimental design adopted for this investigation was the central composite design of response surface methodology. Thirty one readings were taken on VMC machine for dry condition and the surface roughness measured using Mitutoyo surface tester. Surface roughness values for dry condition were lower with 30% SiC reinforced aluminium matrix composites when compared to 10 % and 20 % SiC reinforced aluminium matrix composites . As cutting speed increased Ra & Rz value also increased .% SiC was found most significant factor while drilling aluminium matrix composites.
