Summary and Info
Metal machining is one of the most widespread and economically important engineering industry manufacturing processes. Although it is an old and established process, changes and improvements occur constantly in response to new materials and new needs for, and pressures on, productivity. This book explains the mechanical, thermal and materials principles of the process and shows how these principles determine industrial application conditions. Its coverage ranges from classical analysis and methods of production optimization to the uses of finite element and artificial intelligence methods for predicting machining performance.
