Jagadish and Kapil Gupata: "Abrasive Water Jet Machining of Engineering Materials", 81 pages, Springer, Cham, Switzerland, 2020.
This book presents insights in green techniques used in conventional and advanced machining. It consists of various experimental case studies conducted by the authors on green machining of difficult-to-machine materials, polymer and ceramic materials. Effects of green techniques / processes on machining properties like material removal rate, surface quality, geometric accuracy, productivity, and environment while machining various materials are reported.
Andreas W. Momber and Radovan Kovacevic: "Principles of Abrasive Water Jet Machining", 424 pages, Springer, Cham, Switzerland, 2012.
Abrasive water jet machining was introduced to manufacturing ten years ago and has been increasingly used for treating hard-to-machine and multi-layered materials and as an alternative tool for milling, turning, drilling and polishing. This is the first comprehensive review of the technique, dealing with a broad range of issues including mixing and acceleration processes, material removal mechanisms, process optimization and fluid mechanics. Explanations are given as the book follows the development of an abrasive water jet machining process, from tool generation through to machining results, supervision and control. This methodical journey through the field is marked by drawings, graphs and tables, many of which are being published here for the first time. Though the book is written at an academic level, it focuses very much on practical applications, which reflects the authors' extensive involvement with both laboratory research and industrial practices.
