    ME 510 Subtractive Manufacturing (3-0-0-6)

    Metal cutting theory: models for orthogonal and oblique machining. Advancements in conventional machining processes: thin-wall machining, high speed machining, hard turning, ductile regime machining of brittle materials, single point diamond turning (SPDT), vibration assisted machining, and sustainable machining. Computer numerical control (CNC) machining technology: sculptured surface generation using multi-axis CNC machining, machine tool condition monitoring through force, temperature, vibration signals, etc. Modeling of machining processes: electric discharge machining, electro-chemical machining, laser beam machining, lithography based machining processes, etc. Surface integrity of machined products: measurement of surface topography, micro-hardness and residual stresses. Modeling of magneto-rheological finishing (MRF), and chemo-mechanical polishing (CMP).
