advanced machining processes of metallic materials theory modelling and applications second edition pdf

The broad subject of manufacturing engineering and technology, including machining technology, continues to be recognized as an important and distinct area of study at mechanical engineering faculties of universities and various technical and research institutes. After a couple of decades of neglect, this production subject has finally acquired the distinct academic stature and significance. Engineers and students have come to the conclusion that without a sound manufacturing base, no nation can hope for economic survival in an increasingly competitive international marketplace.

This book is an exploration in modern machining technology. In addition to providing basic information on metal cutting processes and operations, this book also describes  the level of modern machining technology, adopted, to varying degrees, by different sectors of industry in general. Metal machining/cutting is a dynamic technology, involving the range of disciplines of science, which must be mastered to become a practitioner of advanced machining technology. Some of these disciplines are the province of machining technologists, others concern both cutting tool and machine tool manufacturers, and machine tool builders and users. Nonetheless, it can be helpful for all machining-related businesses to have a good grasp of the relevant issues in each area.

The eight disciplines are as follows, each of which is covered in relevant clusters of chapters:
• Materials engineering (see chapters: Cutting Tool Materials; Machinability of
Engineering Materials)
• Engineering mechanics and related disciplines (see chapters: Orthogonal and
Oblique Cutting Mechanics; Chip Formation and Control; Cutting Vibrations)
• Thermodynamics (see chapters: Heat in Metal Cutting; Tool Wear and Damage;
and partially chapter: Cutting Fluids)
• Tribology (see chapters: Tribology of Metal Cutting; Tool Wear and Damage; and
partially chapter: Cutting Fluids)
• Modelling techniques (basically chapters: Modelling and Simulation of Machining
Processes and Operations and successively chapters: Orthogonal and Oblique Cutting
Mechanics; Chip Formation and Control; Cutting Vibrations; Heat in Metal Cutting;
Cutting Fluids; Tribology of Metal Cutting; Tool Wear and Damage; Machinability of
Engineering Materials; Machining Economics and Optimization)
• Manufacturing engineering (see chapter: Advanced Machining Processes and
appropriate sections involved)
• Process and motion control (see chapters: Chip Formation and Control; SensorAssisted Machining; Virtual/Digital and Internet-Based Machining; and partially
chapter: Advanced Machining Processes)
• Surface engineering (see chapter: Surface Integrity)

In general, this book is structured into three parts: the first, including Chapter: 2, Metal Cutting Operations and Terminology; Chapter 3: Trends in Metal Cutting Theory and Practice; Chapter 4, Cutting Tool Materials; Chapter 5, Modelling and Simulation of Machining Processes and Operations; Chapter 6, Orthogonal and Oblique Cutting Mechanics; Chapter 7, Chip Formation and Control; Chapter 8, Cutting Vibrations; Chapter 9, Heat in Metal Cutting; Chapter 10, Cutting Fluids; Chapter 11, Tribology of Metal Cutting; Chapter 12, Tool Wear and Damage; Chapter 13, Machinability of Engineering Materials;

Chapter 14, Machining Economics and Optimization, provides fundamentals of the machining process; the second, including Chapter 15, Advanced Machining Processes; Chapter 16, Micro-Machining; Chapter 17, Nanomanufacturing/Nanotechnology; Chapter 18, Sensor-Assisted Machining; Chapter 19, Virtual/Digital and Internet-Based Machining, overviews the effects of the theoretical and experimental considerations in high-level machining technology; and the third Chapter 20, Surface Integrity, summarizes production outputs related to surface integrity and part quality. Numerous colour images are provided to facilitate the comprehension of the
physical phenomenon involved and the developments of cutting tools, machine tools and machine control systems.
