Course Name: Mechanics of Machining

Course abstract

In this course an attempt is made to standardize the course material and to emphasize on the fundamental mechanics of machining process using analytical approach. The changing of raw material into a final product involves various machining and finishing processes. In the last decade, a lot of development has taken place in the area of non-traditional machining and many non-traditional machining processes have become very popular in industries. However, the importance of traditional machining processes like turning, milling, shaping, drilling, and grinding still continues. The course is developed with a view to disseminate knowledge in the area of traditional machining processes. Also, newer technology like CNC is included. This course aims at bringing the students up-to-date with the latest technological developments and research trends in the field of conventional machining processes.
