About this Research Topic
Finishing of different types of components is typically carried out by material removal processes, which affect their surface integrity and performance by the generation of high thermal and mechanical loads.
New strategies have been proposed to make alterations in the surface and subsurface layers by machining operations with the aim to improve the performance of the components. These strategies include the application of customized cuttings tools, development of new process kinematics, and exploitation of process dynamics.
Within this context, experts in machining processes and material behavior are invited to share original research results and developments on the influence of machining processes and parameters on the behavior of components subjected to mechanical, thermal and chemical loading.
Considering the presented scope, contributions should be related to the following topics:
-Machining and abrasive processes
-Non-conventional machining processes
-Mechanical surface treatments
-Corrosion, fatigue and wear resistance
-Customized cutting and abrasive tools
Keywords: surface integrity, machining, mechanical surface treatment, wear and corrosion resistance, fatigue behavior.
