Abstract: In the present study, Response surface methodology was used to investigate the relationships and parametric interactions between the three controllable variables on the material removal rate (MRR). Experiments are conducted on AISI D2 tool steel with copper electrode and three process variables (factors) as discharge current, pulse duration, and pulse off time. To study the proposed second-order polynomial mode for MRR, we used the central composite experimental design to estimation the model coefficients of the three factors, which are believed to influence the MRR in EDM process. The response was modeled using a response surface model based on experimental results. The significant coefficients were obtained by performing analysis of variance (ANOVA) at 5% level of significance. It was found that discharge current, pulse duration, and pulse off time significant effect on the MRR. This methodology is very effectual, needs only 20 experiments to assess the conditions, and model sufficiency was very satisfactory as the coefficient of determination was 0.962.
