Intended as a guideline for research engineers and graduate students, this book covers the basic theory and principles of metal milling processes and machine dynamics. It reviews the relevant research to date on milling processes, widely used to remove material for the machining of monolithic parts in the aeronautic, aerospace, automobile and most other manufacturing industries.
A new approach to achieving precision in machining methods, as opposed to a typical trial-and-error approach, is to numerically simulate the milling process; in reducing cutting deformations and chatter, the machining accuracy and surface quality of work pieces are increased, resulting in higher quality products. Here we present the relevant detailed mathematical models, derived from and proven by the authors’ own experimental observations.


1. Cutting Forces in Milling Processes.
2. Surface Accuracy in Milling Processes.
3. Dynamics of Milling Processes.
4. Mathematical Modeling of the Workpiece-Fixture System.
