Advances in Abrasive Technology VI
This book presents valuable up-to-date information for active researchers and engineers, and would certainly form a solid basis for any future research, in the field of abrasive technology, aimed at creating new and practical machine tools, systems and processes, or identifying new characteristics.
The topics covered include the mechanics of grinding processes, the grinding and cutting of brittle materials, precision and surface-quality enhancement, grinding wheels, cooling and coolants, advances in truing and dressing for grinding, polishing, micro-machining, novel abrasive techniques and novel machining techniques. Within each topic, novel designs in systems and machine tools, novel techniques and processes are reported. The modeling and characterization of the characteristics and performance of abrasive processes are also presented. In all, 97 papers were contributed; originating from many countries and regions of the world, including: Japan, China, UK, Korea, Germany, Australia, Singapore, Taiwan (China), Hong Kong (China), and the USA.
