The first book to comprehensively address the theory, kinematic modelling, numerical simulation and applications of vibration assisted machining
Vibration Assisted Machining: Theory, Modelling and Applications covers all key aspects of vibration assisted machining, including cutting kinematics and dynamics, the effect of workpiece materials and wear of cutting tools. It also addresses practical applications for these techniques. Case studies provide detailed guidance on the design, modeling and testing of VAM systems. Experimental machining methods are also included, alongside considerations of state-of-the-art research developments on cutting force modeling and surface texture generation.
Advances in computational modelling, surface metrology and manufacturing science over the past few decades have led to tremendous benefits for industry. This is the first comprehensive book dedicated to design, modelling, simulation and integration of vibration assisted machining system and processes, enabling wider industrial application of the technology. This book enables engineering students and professionals in manufacturing to understand and implement the latest vibration assisted machining techniques. Highlights include:
