Abstract Teaching learning based optimization is a recently developed optimization technique which seems to be a promising optimization technique with competitive performance among other evolutionary algorithms. In this study teaching learning based optimization is used for finding optimal process parameters for minimising surface roughness and maximizing material removal rate in CNC turning process. Experiments were done on mild steel work piece using coated carbide insert under dry condition. Response surface methodology was used for design of experiments and subsequent mathematical modelling of surface roughness and material removal rate. The process parameters that optimize surface roughness and material removal rate were found out using teaching learning based optimization. These results were compared with that obtained by another population based optimization technique genetic algorithm. Result shows that teaching learning based optimization provides better result in optimizing surface roughness and material removal rate than genetic algorithm. Also teaching learning based optimization converges faster to the optimum condition than genetic algorithm.

INTRODUCTION
Machining is a process of gradual removal of excess material from the preformed blanks in the form of chips. Turning is one of the most widely employed machining processes for producing and finishing cylindrical and other work pieces. Turning is used to reduce the diameter of the work piece, usually to a specified dimension, and to produce a smooth finish on the metal. In turning material removal takes place by relative motion of the tool against the work piece. In turning the tool should be harder than the work piece for effective removal of the material. The work piece will be turned so that adjacent sections have different diameters. Basically it can be defined as the machining of external surface in which a single point cutting tool is feeding parallel to the axis of the rotating work piece which will remove the excess material from outer surface.
The three primary factors in any basic turning process are speed, feed, and depth of cut. Other factors such as kind of material and type of tool have a large influence, of course, but these three are the ones the operator can change by adjusting the controls, right at the machine. Speed always refers to the spindle and the work piece. When it is stated in revolutions per minute (rpm) it tells their rotating speed. But the important feature for a particular turning operation is the surface speed, or the speed at which the work piece material is moving past the cutting tool. It is simply the product of the rotating speed
times the circumference of the work piece before the cut is started. It is expressed in meter per minute (m/min), and it refers only to the work piece. Every different diameter on a work piece will have a different cutting speed, even though the rotating speed remains the same. Feed always refers to the cutting tool, and it is the rate at which the tool advances along its cutting path. On most powerfed lathes, the feed rate is directly related to the spindle speed and is expressed in mm (of tool advance) per revolution (of the spindle), or mm/rev. Depth of cut is the thickness of the layer being removed (in a single pass) from the work piece or the distance from the uncut surface of the work to the cut surface, expressed in mm. It is important to note, though, that the diameter of the work piece is reduced by two times the depth of cut because this layer is being removed from both sides of the work.
The material removal rate (MRR) in turning process is the volume of material that is removed per unit time or weight of material that is removed per unit time. It is expressed either in mm3/min or in g/min. The MRR value directly relates to the productivity of a machine. If the machine has high MRR then more amount of work can be carried out in given time and hence an increase in productivity. But just having a high MRR doesnt satisfy the conditions of a good product. The MRR should be adjusted in such a way that the other quality parameters such as surface roughness, tool wear rate etc. are not affected.
Surface roughness is an important measure of product quality since it greatly influences the performance of mechanical parts as well as production cost. Surface roughness has an impact on the mechanical properties like fatigue behaviour, corrosion resistance, creep life etc. It also affects other functional attributes of parts like friction, wear, light reflection, heat transmission, lubrication, electrical conductivity, etc. The resultant roughness produced by a machining process can be thought of as the combination of two independent quantities Ideal roughness and natural roughness. Ideal surface roughness is a function of feed and geometry of the tool. It represents the best possible finish which can be obtained for a given tool shape and feed. It can be achieved only if the builtupedge, chatter and inaccuracies in the machine tool movements are eliminated completely. But in practice, it is not usually possible to achieve such conditions. One of the main factors contributing to natural roughness is the occurrence of a builtup edge and vibration of the machine tool. Thus, larger the built up edge, the rougher would be the surface produced, and factors tending to reduce chiptool friction and to eliminate or reduce the builtup edge would give improved surface finish.
To ensure the quality of machining products, and to reduce the machining costs and increase the machining effectiveness, it is very important to select the machining parameters are selected in CNC machining. Traditional manufacturing industries have long depended on highly skilled work force, thus perhaps partially optimizing few parameters/ things without use of any scientific practice. The other aspect of relying on skilled workers is that it is very difficult to attain the optimum value each time. But use of NC/ CNC requires optimizing all the machining parameters in a specific way. In recent times, optimization algorithms are becoming increasingly popular in engineering design and decision making activities, primarily because of the availability and affordability of high speed computers.
The objective of this paper is to set up the optimum cutting parameters, optimizing Surface roughness and Material removal rate without violating the constraints. In this paper, the cutting parameters affecting these two objectives are assumed as spindle speed (rpm), feed (f) and depth of cut (d). The requirement is to establish the optimal value of these cutting parameters so that both objective functions are optimized together.
Response surface methodology (RSM) is a collection of mathematical and statistical technique that is useful for modelling and analysis of problems in which a response of interest is influenced by several variables and the objective is to optimise the response. In most RSM problems the form of relationship between response and the independent variables is unknown. Thus the first step is to find a suitable approximation for the true functional relationship between the response and the set of independent variables. If the response is well modelled by a linar function of the independent variable, then the approximating function is the first order model. If there is a curvature in the system, then a polynomial of higher degree must be used, such as the second order model.
Here the optimization is carried out using Teaching Learning Based Optimization (TLBO) technique. It is based on teachinglearning process in which every learner tries to learn something from other individuals to improve themselves. This algorithm simulates the traditional teachinglearning phenomenon of a class room.

LITRATURE REVIEW
Ashvin J Makadia et al [7] used response surface methodology to optimize machining parameters such as feed rate, tool nose radius, cutting speed and depth of cut in the CNC turning of AISI 410 steel. The effect of these parameters on surface roughness was studied to find out the most influencing parameter. Feed rate followed by tool nose radius were the most influencing parameters that effects surface roughness in the CNC turning of AISI 410 steel. By carrying out the optimization, optimum combination of parameters obtained were 255.75 m/min, 0.3mm, 0.1 mm/rev,
1.2 mm for cutting speed, depth of cut, feed rate and tool nose radius respectively.
Anil Gupta et al [8] carried out multi output optimization of surface roughness, cutting force, and tool life and power consumption using Taguchi method with logical fuzzy reasoning. Machining parameters considered for the CNC

Optimum cutting speed, feed, depth of cut and nose radius obtained were 160m/min, 0.1 mm/rev, 0.2 mm and 0.8 mm respectively. Cryogenic environment was found to be reducing surface roughness, power consumption and cutting force and increasing tool life.
ChorngJyh Tzeng et al [9] optimized surface roughness for CNC turning process using Taguchi method and grey relational analysis method. Experimentation was carried out on SKD 11 by taking four influencing parameters namely cutting speed, feed, depth of cut and cutting fluid ratio. Depth of cut was found to be the most significant factor in the optimization of roughness average. Cutting speed was the most influencing factor in the case of roughness maximum.

The effects of cutting speed, feed rate, depth of cut and work piece hardness were experimentally investigated taking surface roughness and cutting force components as responses. Response surface methodology was used for mathematical modelling and optimization of responses. The study showed that feed rate and work piece hardness are the significant factors effecting surface roughness. The feed force and the cutting force are strongly influenced by the depth of cut whereas the cutting speed had very small influence.
Ilhan Asilturk et al [13] analyzed the effect of cutting speed, feed and depth of cut on surface roughness in the CNC turning of AISI 304 austenitic stainless steel using coated carbide insert under dry condition. Taguchi based response surface analysis were used for the optimization of surface roughness (both Ra and Rz). Mathematical modelling of the surface roughness as a function of cutting parameters was carried out using response surface methodology. Feed rate is the dominant factor affecting surface roughness, which is minimized when the feed rate and depth of cut are set to the lowest level, while the cutting speed is set to the highest level.
D. Philip Selvaraj et al [14] carried out optimization of two different grades of nitrogen alloyed duplex stainless steel by using Taguchi method. Machining were performed using TiC and TiCN coated carbide cutting tool inserts. Surface roughness, cutting force and tool wear were taken as the
response. Variation of these responses with respect to cutting speed and feed rate were studied at constant depth of cut by using signal to noise ratio and analysis of variance. Analysis showed that surface roughness and cutting force were significantly influenced by feed rate, whereas the tool wear was significantly influenced by cutting speed. Three levels and three factors design were used for experimentation.

The machining parameters were determined by minimizing the unit production cost, subject to various practical machining constraints. The optimum cutting speed and feed obtained were 103.05 m/min and 0.9 mm/rev for roughing cut and
162.02 m/min and 0.24 mm/rev for finishing cut respectively. It was found, by comparing the obtained unit cost of 1.6262$ with that obtained in genetic algorithm and simulated annealing, that ant colony algorithm performed better than other two.

Optimization of surface roughness and tool life were carried out using genetic algorithm. Cutting speed, feed and depth of cut were taken as the influencing parameters in the optimization of response. Surface finish was found to be better at lower values of cutting speed, feed and depth of cut.
Ramon Quiza Sardinas et al [20] carried out multi objective optimization of tool life and operation time by using Genetic Algorithm. Cutting speed, feed, depth of cut were taken as the influencing parameters in the optimization.
From the literature review it was found that lot of work has been done in the field of turning for modelling analysis and optimization. Various optimization techniques were found to be used for finding the optimal parameters. Teaching learning based optimization is a recently developed population based optimization technique which is not found to be used for optimizing responses such as surface roughness, material
removal rate etc. Also teaching learning based optimization seems to perform better than other optimization algorithms. Hence the objective of the present work is the application of this method in turning process. Surface roughness and material removal rate are considered here.

IV MATHEMATICAL MODELLING
The relationship between the factors and the performance measures were modelled by quadratic regression. Regression coefficients were obtained using experimental data. Mathematical modelling refers to obtaining equation connecting response and influencing parameters. These equations are required for the optimization of the responses such as surface roughness and material removal rate. Response surface methodology based regression equations of the four responses as a function of the input parameters (spindle speed, feed and depth of cut) are as shown below.
The regression equation for surface roughness parameter Ra is
The regression equation for surface roughness parameter Rq is

Then specimen is turned at different speed, feed and depth of cut according to the design of experiment. Again the weight is measured for finding the material removal rate After that the roughness parameters are measured using surface roughness tester SJ210.Three roughness parameters Ra, Rq, Rz are measured for each specimen at three different locations and the average value is taken.

V OPTIMISATION USING TEACHING LEARNING BASED OPTIMISATION (TLBO)
Teachinglearningbased optimization is based on teaching learning process in which every learner tries to learn something from other individuals to improve themselves. This algorithm simulates the traditional teachinglearning phenomenon of a class room [3]. Here, two different teachers, T1 and T2 are assumed teaching same subject to the same merit level students in two different classes. The distribution of marks obtained by the learners of two different classes taught by two different teachers are shown in the Fig.4.
Fig.4.Distribution of Marks Obtained By Learners [3]
Curves 1 and 2 represent the marks obtained by the learners taught by teacher T1 and T2 respectively. A normal distribution is assumed for the obtained marks. The normal distribution is defined as
where 2 is the variance, is the mean and x is any value for which the normal distribution function is required. It is seen from Fig.1.12 that curve2 represents better results than curve1 and so it can be said that teacher T2 is better than teacher T1 in terms of teaching. The main difference between both the results is their mean (M2 for Curve2 and M1 for Curve1), i.e. a good teacher produces a better mean for the results of the learners. Learners also learn from interaction between themselves, which also helps in their results.
Based on the above teaching process, Rao et al [3] developed a mathematical model and implemented for the optimization of an unconstrained nonlinear continuous function, thereby developing a novel optimization technique called Teaching LearningBased Optimization (TLBO).
Like other natureinspired algorithms, TLBO is also a population based method that uses a population of solutions to proceed to the global solution. For TLBO, the population is considered as a group of learners or a class of learners. In
optimization algorithms, the population consists of different design variables. In TLBO, different design variables will be analogous to different subjects offered to learners and the learners result is analogous to the fitness, as in other populationbased optimization techniques. The teacher is considered as the best solution obtained so far. The process of TLBO is divided into two parts. The first part consists of the Teacher Phase and the second part consists of the Learner Phase. The Teacher Phase means learning from the teacher and the Learner Phase means learning through the interaction between learners
A good teacher brings his or her learners up to his or her level in terms of knowledge. But in practice this is not possible and a teacher can only move the mean of a class up to some extent depending on the capability of the class. This follows a random process depending on many factors. Learners increase their knowledge by two different means: one through input from the teacher and the other through interaction between themselves. A learner learns something new if the other learner has more knowledge than him or her.
Teaching learning based optimization was done by using the experimental data and mathematical modelling which were considered earlier. Optimization performance of teaching learning based optimization was checked using MATLAB R2013a by using computer code. Parameters of optimization were population size=20 and number of generation=100.
VI RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
In the present study, TLBO algorithm is used for finding the optimal process parameters for minimizing surface roughness and maximizing material removal rate in CNC turning process. The results of the optimization are listed in Table IV.
