Abrasive Waterjet Machining of Engineering Materials
Trans Tech Publications, Limited, Jan 1, 2003 - Technology & Engineering - 106 pages
The emphasis of this book is placed squarely on the practical application of AWJ machining technology, and covers all necessary details of the fundamental scientific aspects. It provides a detailed analysis of the effects of the main processing parameters upon cutting performance when machining typical engineering materials, as well as detailing novel techniques for enhancing the cutting performance. Following a brief introductory chapter, the fundamentals of the AWJ machining process are reviewed, including material erosion mechanisms and predictive machining-performance models. This book will be useful to both researchers and post-graduates or final- year undergraduates who are specializing in manufacturing processes. It should also be particularly useful to those industrial users of materials processing who are charged with making AWJ machining more efficient.
