    Forming and Machining of Polymers, Ceramics, and Composites targets the two important manufacturing processes where plastic deformation is involved to give the required shape and size to the raw material. The main goal of the book is to represent the recent developments in the field of forming and machining of different nonmetals especially polymers, composites, and ceramics. Special focus is on the advancement of these processes to manufacture components from these non-metals.

    Presents exclusive material dedicated to forming and machining of nonmetals i.e., polymers, ceramics, and composites

    Provides comprehensive coverage of all important topics related to non-metals processing

    Covers basics and current research in the field of forming and machining of nonmetals

    Focuses on sustainability interventions and intelligent manufacturing techniques for quality and productivity in forming and machining of non-metals

    Discusses conventional and non-conventional machining and microfabrication aspects for fabrication and processing of nonmetals                                                                                               

    This book is aimed at graduate students and researchers in materials processing and machine design.
