PRABHU, S.  e  VINAYAGAM, B. K.. Fractal dimensional surface analysis of AISI D2 Tool steel material with nanofluids in grinding process using atomic force microscopy. J. Braz. Soc. Mech. Sci. & Eng. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.4, pp.459-466. ISSN 1678-5878.

The surface analysis of nanomachined AISI D2 tool steel materials is measured using atomic force microscopy. The surface roughness and fractal dimensional analysis are the important factors in nano tribology and evaluating the quality of nanomachined surface. Carbon nanotube increases the heat carrying capacity, thermal conductivity of the lubricating oil and thus prevents any damage to the work piece. The surface morphology of different machined surface was studied by Fractal Dimension analysis and roughness characterization was carried out. The results indicate that the fractal dimension changed according to the smoothness of the machined surface. The Power Spectrum Density (PSD) method based Root mean square (Rms) surface roughness was calculated for carbon nano tube based nanofluids in grinding process. The fractal dimension and roughness are decreased due to single wall carbon nano tube based nanofluids and smooth surface finish has been obtained.

Palavras-chave : carbon nanotube; nanofluids; atomic force microscopy; fractal dimension; roughness; power spectrum density.
