Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

[Machining Dynamics] can be used for final undergraduate engineering course (for example, manufacturing, mechanical, etc.) or as a subject on manufacturing at the postgraduate level. Also, this book can serve as a useful reference for academics, manufacturing researchers, mechanical and manufacturing engineers, professional in related industries with machine tools and machining processes.

Davim, J.P. (2009) ‘Machining Dynamics by Kai Cheng (Ed.)’, Int. J. Machining and Machinability of Materials.

"Machining dynamics is an important area for the advancement of national economies. … This book is the work of 16 authors. … This work can be used as an introduction to some of the science and engineering that lies at the foundation of the operation of these machine tools. Summing Up: Recommended. Upper-division undergraduates, graduate students, researchers, and faculty in manufacturing engineering." (A. M. Strauss, Choice, Vol. 46 (9), May, 2009)

Meet the Author

Professor Kai Cheng holds the chair professorship in Precision Engineering at Leeds Metropolitan University. His current research interests focus on the design of precision machines and instruments; nano-/micro-machining; machining dynamics and control; precision manufacturing; and digital manufacturing and enterprise technologies. Professor Cheng has published over 160 papers in international journals and refereed conferences, authored/edited four books and contributed six book chapters. He is Associate Editor (Europe) for Springer's International Journal of Advanced Manufacturing Technology.

His BEng (Hons) and MSc degrees were obtained from the Harbin Institute of Technology and he has a PhD from Liverpool John Moores University. He worked as a senior lecturer in Glasgow Caledonian University before joining Leeds Metropolitan University. Professor Cheng is a fellow of the IEE and the IMechE, and a member of the Euspen. He is the leader of the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Research Group, which is currently working on a number of research projects funded by the UK Research Councils, EU 6th Framework Program, KTP Program, DTI (UK), and the industry. The group has a record of international excellence in the areas of precision machine design, nano-/micro-machining and digital manufacturing.
