It is now well established that unconventional machining processes are able to meet the challenges posed by the demand for economic machining of ultra-hard and high strength materials to close tolerances. Over the last decade, most of unconventional processes emerged swiftly from the laboratory research to production lines across the country due to demand from diversified industries such as automotive, aircraft, biotechnology, chemical and nuclear industries. In this sense, they are no more unconventional or non-traditional; rather advanced machining processes. 
This book addresses issues essential to unconventional machining processes, covering all modern machining processes such as mechanical processes, electrochemical and chemical metal removal processes, and thermal metal removal processes. The text continually emphasizes fundamentals and complete mathematical analysis of the processes as well as advanced applications of advanced manufacturing processes and operations. Each of the modern machining processes is discussed in a separate chapter, with the most up-to-date information and an emphasis on the economics of processes. In order to make the concepts easier to understand, a variety of applications are discussed as well as several numerical problems are worked out. The material is written mainly for students in mechanical, materials science and engineering, automobile engineering, aircraft engineering and industrial and production engineering programs.

  • Covers all the modern machining processes.
  • Maintains a balanced presentation of modern machining processes.
  • Contains a large number of solved problems.
  • Review questions are given at the end of each chapter.
  • Each chapter deals with the subject comprehensively with strong emphasis on fundamental concepts.
  • Contains more than 300 short questions and answers and multiple-choice questions taken from various university and competitive examinations.
