Machining and Tribology provides insight into both the role of tribology in machining and the effects of various machining processes on tribology, exploring topics such as machining mechanisms, coolant technology, tool wear, and more. Covering the latest research, the book starts by looking at the tribological aspects of turning, milling, and drilling processes. From there, it explores the effects of different coolants such as flood, minimum quantity lubrication, and cryogenics on machining forces, tool wear, friction, chip formation, and surface generation during various machining processes. Tribological considerations of machined components follow, and the volume concludes with chapters covering simulation scenarios for predicting machining forces, tool wear, surface generation, and chip formation.
