The International Journal of Machine Tools and Manufacture is devoted to advances in scientific understanding of essential mechanics of processes and machines applied to the manufacture of engineering components, mainly in metals, but also in composites, ceramics and other structural/functional materials. To this end coverage is given to a range of topics that includes: •Essential mechanics of processes involving material removal, accretion and deformation, in solid, semi-solid or particulate form •Significant scientific development of existing or new processes and machines •In-depth characterisation of workpiece materials (structure/surfaces) by advanced techniques (e.g. SEM, EDS, TEM, EBSD, AES, Raman spectroscopy) to reveal new phenomenological aspects that govern manufacturing processes •Tool design, utilisation and in-depth studies of failure mechanisms •Novel concepts of machine tools/fixtures/tool holders supported by modelling and demonstrations that are relevant to manufacturing processes within the journal's remit •Novel scientific contributions dealing
machine tools, manufacture, mechanics
