Mechanics of Machining the complete guide in 2020

  • Course level: Beginner


Mechanics of Machining.

Machining is a metal removal process, which can be accomplished by applying force on the raw material using a cutting tool. This Mechanics of Machining course aims at explaining the physics of the cutting process. The course will contain a discussion of statics, kinematics, and kinetics of the cutting process. Experimental findings relevant to the mechanics of the process will also be discussed. The course will also include an introductory discussion on non-traditional machining processes.
