Progress in Abrasive and Grinding Technology
Special Topic Volume With Invited Papers OnlyeBook - 2009
Volume is indexed by Thomson Reuters BCI (WoS).The grinding and abrasive processing of materials are machining techniques which use bonded or loose abrasives to remove material from workpieces. Due to the well-known advantages of grinding and abrasive processes, advances in abrasive and grinding technology are always of great import in enhancing both productivity and component quality. In order to highlight the recent progress made in this field, the editor invited 21 world-wide contributions with the aim of gathering together all of the achievements of leading researchers into a single publication. The authors of the 21 invited papers, of both review and research type, therefore hail from Australia, China, Germany, Japan, Singapore, Taiwan (China), UK and the USA.The abrasive processes covered by this volume include not only grinding and polishing, but also wire-sawing and abrasive water-jet machining. The topics covered address both fundamental aspects and novel techniques. It is therefore certain that this volume will be invaluable to production and research engineers, research students and academics working in this area. For production and research engineers, research students, and academics, Xu (manufacturing engineering, HuaQiao U., China) brings together 21 studies on advances in abrasive and grinding technology for processing and removing workpiece materials, including grinding and polishing, wire sawing, and abrasive waterjet machining. Engineers from Europe, the US, Australia, and Asia discuss advanced ceramics, electrolytic in-process dressing grinding, the polishing techniques of diamond and diamond composites, applications of contact length models in grinding processes, the high speed grinding of granite with a segmented diamond wheel, and other topics.
