Electro-Discharge Machining (EDM) and Wire Electro-Discharge Machining (WEDM) are used to machine high strength, temperature resistant (HSTR) alloys components in aeronautical and automotive industries. The selection of process parameters to achieve optimal performance needs adequate modeling of EDM and WEDM. The complexity and stochastic nature of the EDM process has defied numerous attempts of modeling it accurately. Therefore, this chapter reports an attempt of modeling of EDM and WEDM processes through an artificial ...
