Metal cutting applications span the entire range from mass production to mass customization to high-precision, fully customized designs. The careful balance between precision and efficiency is maintained only through intimate knowledge of the physical processes, material characteristics, and technological capabilities of the equipment and workpieces involved. The best-selling first edition of Metal Cutting Theory and Practice provided such knowledge, integrating timely research with current industry practice. This brilliant reference enters its second edition with fully updated coverage, new sections, and the inclusion of examples and problems. Supplying complete, up-to-date information on machine tools, tooling, and workholding technologies, this second edition stresses a physical understanding of machining processes including forces, temperatures, and surface finish. This provides a practical basis for troubleshooting and evaluating vendor claims. In addition to updates in all chapters, the book features three new chapters on cutting fluids, agile and high-throughput machining, and design for machining. The authors also added examples and problems for additional hands-on insight. Rounding out the treatment, an entire chapter is devoted to machining economics and optimization. Endowing you with practical knowledge and a fundamental understanding of underlying physical concepts, Metal Cutting Theory and Practice, Second Edition is a necessity for designing, evaluating, purchasing, and using machine tools.

Tribology of Metal Cutting deals with the emerging field of studies known as Metal Cutting Tribology. Tribology is defined as the science and technology of interactive surfaces moving relative each other. It concentrates on contact physics and mechanics of moving interfaces that generally involve energy dissipation. This book summarizes the available information on metal cutting tribology with a critical review of work done in the past. The book covers the complete system of metal cutting testing. In particular, it presents, explains and exemplifies a breakthrough concept of the physical resource of the cutting tool. It also describes the cutting system physical efficiency and its practical assessment via analysis of the energy partition in the cutting system. Specialists in the field of metal cutting will find information on how to apply the major principles of metal cutting tribology, or, in other words, how to make the metal cutting tribology to be useful at various levels of applications. The book discusses other novel concepts and principles in the tribology of metal cutting such as the energy partition in the cutting system; versatile metrics of cutting tool wear; optimal cutting temperature and its use in the optimization of the cutting process; the physical concept of cutting tool resource; and embrittlement action. This book is intended for a broad range of readers such as metal cutting tool, cutting insert, and process designers; manufacturing engineers involved in continuous process improvement; research workers who are active or intend to become active in the field; and senior undergraduate and graduate students of manufacturing. · Introduces the cutting system physical efficiency and its practical assessment via analysis of the energy partition in the cutting system. · Presents, explains and exemplifies a breakthrough concept of the physical resource of the cutting tool. · Covers the complete system of metal cutting testing.

In these vivid, thought-provoking essays, leading scholars draw from their own life experiences to explore the ways in which socio-economic class has shaped their lives and educational practices. Some experienced the sting of poverty as students, while others tell stories of a privileged upbringing and moments of epiphany when they recognized the far-reaching effects of class privilege. Many in this volume tell stories of their successful (and not-so-successful) teaching experiences with students from various social classes, providing valuable insights for teachers and other education professionals.

"Cutting and grinding fluids at one time were considered little more than a necessary nuisance. However, they are something the metal working industry cannot do without. Today, thousands of blends of fluids provide the necessary lubricity and cooling to allow heavier feeds, higher speeds, and longer tool life demanded in the modern machining industry. Metal working fluids today need not be a nuisance if properly selected, applied, and maintained. This book provides comprehensive information on how to successfully select, apply and maintain cutting and grinding fluids for maximum productivity, minimum waste, and safe performance."--Back cover.

Plant-animal interactions have become a focus of ecological research, with the processes of herbivory being of special interest. This volume examines the interactions of leaf-cutting ants with the rainforest vegetation on Barro Colorado Islands in Central America. It is the synthesis of field research on multiple scales extending over a period of several years. This work can serve as a model study summarizing and extending knowledge about herbivorous insect-plant relationships, and the resulting consequences on structural and functional features of tropical ecosystems. The text is an invaluable reference for researchers and land managers working in the fields of plant-animal interactions, herbivory, community ecology and biodiversity.
