Sintered boron carbide is an extremely hard, structural ceramic material and it is difficult to be machined with conventional techniques. To overcome the machining problem, the spark plasma sintered (SPS) monolithic boron carbide (B4C) was successfully machined by wire electrical discharge machining (WEDM) as the material is electrically conductive. The effects of five different machining parameters of WEDM were carefully observed to check their effect on the useful responses, namely machining speed and surface roughness (R-a) for cutting sintered B4C samples. A number of experimental operations were derived by using the concept of central composite design (CCD) and fuzzy logic was implemented to predict the response for a particular input parameter set. Also, a multi objective optimization was performed by fuzzy logic rule based multi performance characteristics indices technique (MPCI). (C) 2020 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
