Thoroughly revised and updated in this second edition, Metal Cutting Principles identifies the major problem areas of metal cutting during the production of mechanical components. It presents the latest findings on the relationships between metal cutting and fundamental physics, chemistry, the behavior of materials, and the engineering sciences of heat transfer, solid mechanics, and surface science (tribology). An analysis of the basic two-dimensional cutting process is followed by a consideration of three-dimensional examples, with special attention given to cutting temperatures, tool wear, tool life, and the integrity of the finished surface. Machining economics and process optimization are also discussed. In addition, the text includes a chapter on applications that take advantage of the unusual physical and chemical conditions that occur during cutting. Features of the Second Edition BLIncludes five new chapters: BL20. Modeling of Chip Formation BL21. Wavy Chip Formation BL22. Saw-Tooth Chip Formation BL23. Precision Engineering BL24. Unusual Applications of the Metal Cutting Process BLDiscusses mathematical modeling and provides simplified models that cover thermal, material, and surface considerations during various aspects of the cutting process
