Abstract: In present work, the effect of turning parameters like cutting velocity, feed rate, primary depth of cut (DOC) and secondary-DOC on responses like primary cutting force (Fp), secondary cutting force (Fs) and surface roughness (Ra) using duplex turning process are observed. The preliminary experiments and entropy-grey relational analysis (GRA) has been utilised to plan the experiment. Analysis of variance (ANOVA) analyses the influence of each parameter on the responses. It is observed that feed rate has more effect as compared to other parameters. The confirmation experiment at GRA optimal condition shows the improvement in all responses as Fp = 15.34%, Fs = 17.20% and Ra = 10.14% positively.
