Advances in Abrasive Technology XII
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters CPCI-S (WoS).
Abrasive technologies are central to modern manufacturing as applied to a wide variety of products covering many disciplines: from nanoscale components to large-scale equipment, and from biomedical devices to aerospace structures.
This special issue brings together the latest advances in, and applications of, abrasive technologies. It comprises 122 selected peer-reviewed technical and review articles, and covers a broad range of research topics including: design, fabrication, truing and dressing of grinding wheels, precision grinding, abrasive-jet processing, lapping, honing, polishing and non-conventional finishing, semiconductor processing, micro/nano- machining, fabrication and forming, advanced machining and rock-cutting technologies, tribology in manufacturing, process monitoring and measurement, and other novel techniques and advanced studies related to abrasive technologies.
It will therefore be an especial asset to all those who study or use abrasives.
Review from Ringgold Inc., ProtoView: Abrasive technologies are applied in many areas of modern manufacturing, from nanoscale components to aerospace structures. This special issue is comprised of 122 selected, peer-reviewed technical and review articles from a September 2009 conference on abrasive technologies. Coverage encompasses design, fabrication, truing, and dressing of grinding wheels, precision grinding, abrasive-jet processing, non-conventional finishing, semiconductor processing, micro/nano-machining, rock-cutting technologies, and tribology in manufacturing. Some specific subjects explored are diamond tools for grinding complex ceramic implant surfaces, optimization of coated SiC belt grinding of alumina ceramics, an internal grinding machine for precision grinding, and surface characteristics and roughness prediction of TC4 titanium alloy in high speed grinding.
