This comprehensive reference text discusses the concepts of the magnetic field assisted finishing processes that range from working principles, material removal mechanisms, process parameters and equipment involved, to the industry-specific applications.
The book discusses various aspects of surface finishing, including types of material to be finished, types of finishing abrasives and their characteristics for material compatibility, that are different from process-specific details. It covers important concepts, including magnetic abrasive finishing (MAF), magnetorheological finishing (MRF) and magnetorheological abrasive flow finishing (MRAFF).
- Discusses a wide range of magnetic field assisted finishing processes in a comprehensive manner
- Covers different process parameters by considering their effects on the finishing output
- Provides process limitations to achieve optimal yield
- Offers numerical explanations for better selection of process parameters
- Discusses automation of processes with state-of-the-art technologies
This book is aimed at graduate students and professionals in the fields of mechanical engineering, aerospace engineering, production engineering, manufacturing and industrial engineering.
