The Science and Engineering of Cutting: The Mechanics and Processes of Separating, Scratching and Puncturing Biomaterials, Metals and Non-metals, Second Edition has been updated to include new developments in the mechanics of cutting, introducing topics such as friction modeling, oblique cutting of polymers, nano-sectioning, ultraprecision cutting, new methods for determining the fracture toughness of welds and glued joints, finite element simulations of cutting, and much more. The book also looks at new applications, such as improvements in the design of wood cutting machinery, body armor, and the employment of greater ‘slice-push’ methods in food-cutting machinery.
