Overview

Machining is one of the most important manufacturing processes. Parts manufactured by other processes often require further operations before the product is ready for application. “Machining: Fundamentals and Recent Advances” is divided into two parts. Part I explains the fundamentals of machining, with special emphasis on three important aspects: mechanics of machining, tools, and work-piece integrity. Part II is dedicated to recent advances in machining, including: machining of hard materials, machining of metal matrix composites, drilling polymeric matrix composites, ecological machining (minimal quantity of lubrication), high-speed machining (sculptured surfaces), grinding technology and new grinding wheels, micro- and nano-machining, non-traditional machining processes, and intelligent machining (computational methods and optimization). Advanced students, researchers and professionals interested or involved in modern manufacturing engineering will find the book a useful reference.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Supplementary processes for material removal... such as electric discharge machining, electrochemical machining, ultrasonic machining, laser beam machining, and nanomachining have been in service for several decades. However, despite the extensive use of these processes, several questions remain unanswered. This book represents a fresh attempt to provide the long-overdue answers to some of these research questions. Its 12 chapters present the contributions of 24 of the best-qualified minds of eight countries. The first three chapters cover the basics of machining, with the remainder of the book focusing on newer techniques. Anyone with a research interest in the field of material removal will find this a valuable resource and a worthy addition to their professional and personal libraries... Recommended.
