This book identifies the major problem areas of metal cutting during the production of mechanical components. Thoroughly updated with new questions and exercises at the end of each chapter, the book relates observed performance in metal cutting to fundamental physics, materials behavior, andchemistry. In addition, heat transfer, tribology, and solid mechanics are covered in appropriate detail.
