This series fosters information exchange and discussion on all aspects of manufacturing and surface engineering for modern industry. This series focuses on manufacturing with emphasis in machining and forming technologies, including traditional machining (turning, milling, drilling, etc.), non-traditional machining (EDM, USM, LAM, etc.), abrasive machining, hard part machining, high speed machining, high efficiency machining, micromachining, internet-based machining, metal casting, joining, powder metallurgy, extrusion, forging, rolling, drawing, sheet metal forming, microforming, hydroforming, thermoforming, incremental forming, plastics/composites processing, ceramic processing, hybrid processes (thermal, plasma, chemical and electrical energy assisted methods), etc. The manufacturability of all materials will be considered, including metals, polymers, ceramics, composites, biomaterials, nanomaterials, etc.
The series covers the full range of surface engineering aspects such as surface metrology, surface integrity, contact mechanics, friction and wear, lubrication and lubricants, coatings an surface treatments, multiscale tribology including biomedical systems and manufacturing processes. Moreover, the series covers the computational methods and optimization techniques applied in manufacturing and surface engineering.
Contributions to this book series are welcome on all subjects of manufacturing and surface engineering. Especially welcome are books that pioneer new research directions, raise new questions and new possibilities, or examine old problems from a new angle.
