The first title in the "Manufacturing Engineering Modular" series, the publication of this book marks recognition of the effect of surface finish obtained in manufacture ("surface integrity") on the functional performance of product, in terms of such factors as fatigue, corrosion and strength. It is a concise work, intended chiefly for undergraduate and postgraduate students, which should also provide useful material for the professional manufacturing engineer.
Design engineers, manufacturing and precision engineers in industry and research; engineering libraries in universities, research and industrial organizations; tribologists and undergraduate and postgraduate students in manufacturing engineering
Table of Contents
Setting the scene; The manufacturing process unit event; Surface finish measuring methods; Surface finish characterization; Sub-surface altered material layers; Standards and codes of practice; Appendix: Typical surface integrity questions
