    As machining processes become more advanced, so does the science behind them. This book emphasizes these scientific developments, in addition to the more widely covered technological aspects, providing a full understanding of how machining has adapted to material constraints and moved beyond conventional methods in recent years.

    Numerous machining processes have been developed to allow the use of increasingly tough, corrosion-resistant, and temperature-resistant materials for different applications. The advanced machining processes covered in this book range from mechanical, thermoelectric, and electrochemical, including abrasive water jet machining, electric discharge machining and micromachining, ion beam machining, and hybrid processes. It also addresses the sustainability issues raised by these processes. The underlying science of machining is centered throughout, as none of these processes can reach their full potential without both technical expertise and scientific understanding.

    Advanced Machining Science and its scientific approach will be of particular interest to students, researchers, and shop floor engineers.
