    In the recent years the interest in loose abrasive machining processes as efficient, flexible processes is rising. This paper describes the development of a ‘coherent set of models’ for a category of these processes, namely those which use high velocity of the particles to obtain the necessary energy to machine a workpiece surface. The usability of this ‘coherent set of models’ will be explained with its application in the field of high-pressure abrasive waterjet cutting. At the end of this paper a forecast to the application of this modelling technique to other loose abrasive machining processes as Micro-Abrasive Air Jet Machining is given.
