Editorial Reviews
From Book News, Inc.


Outlines the fundamentals of metal cutting analysis, presenting basic scientific factors as well as application potential, and aiming to reduce reliance on empirical approaches. After an introduction covering the history of metal cutting and basic problems requiring solution, the author introduces a system approach. He then covers parallel-sided deformation zone theory, work material considerations, finite element simulation, and methodology of experimental studies. The appendix contains information on cutting tool geometry. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Book Description


For all practicing engineers and metallurgists improving design and efficiency in the manufacturing industry Metal Cutting Mechanics outlines the fundamentals of metal cutting analysis, reducing the extent of empirical approaches to the problems as well as bridging the gap between design and manufacture. The author distinguishes his work from other works through these aspects:

* considering the system engineering of the cutting process

* identifying the singularity of the cutting process among other closely related manufacturing processes by chip formation, caused by bending and shear stresses in the deformation zone

* suggesting a distinctive way toward predictability of the metal cutting process

* devoting special attention to experimental methodology Metal Cutting Mechanics provides an exceptional balance between general reading and research analysis, presenting industrial and academic requirements in terms of basic scientific factors as well as application potential.
