Machining : Fundamentals and Recent Advances, Hardback Book

Machining : Fundamentals and Recent Advances Hardback

Edited by J. Paulo Davim


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.
