J. Paulo Davim received his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Porto in 1997 and the Aggregation from the University of Coimbra in 2005. Between 1986/96, he was lecturer in University of Porto. (Delete) Currently, he is an Aggregate Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering of the University of Aveiro and the Head of MACTRIB - Machining and Tribology Research Group http://www2.mec.ua.pt/machining .
He has more 25 years of teaching and research experience in manufacturing, materials and mechanical engineering with special emphasis in Machining & Tribology. He is the Editor in Chief of six international journals, Guest Editor of journals, books Editor, book Series Editor and Scientific Advisory for many international journals and conferences. Presently, he is an Editorial Board member of 20 international journals and acts as reviewer for than 70 prestigious ISI web Science journals. In addition, he has also published as author and co-author more than 40 book chapters and 350 articles in journals and conferences (more 180 articles in ISI Web Science, h-index 25+).
1.Laser assisted manufacturing: fundamentals, current scenario and future applications.- 2.Laser beam machining.- 3.CO2 Laser cutting of triangular geometry in aluminium foam.- 4.Micro-electrical discharge machining (Micro-EDM).- 5.Prototype machine for Micro-EDM.- 6.Abrasive water jet milling.- 7.A new approach for the production of blades by hybrid processes.
Nontraditional machining employs processes that remove material by various methods involving thermal, electrical, chemical and mechanical energy or even combinations of these. Nontraditional Machining Processes covers recent research and development in techniques and processes which focus on achieving high accuracies and good surface finishes, parts machined without burrs or residual stresses especially with materials that cannot be machined by conventional methods.
With applications to the automotive, aircraft and mould and die industries, Nontraditional Machining Processes explores different aspects and processes through dedicated chapters. The seven chapters explore recent research into a range of topics including laser assisted manufacturing, abrasive water jet milling and hybrid processes.
Students and researchers will find the practical examples and new processes useful for both reference and for developing further processes. Industry professionals and materials engineers will also find Nontraditional Machining Processes to be a source of ideas and processes for development and industrial application.
