International Journal of Machining and Machinability of Materials (IJMMM)
IJMMM is a refereed publication in the field of machining and machinability
of materials. Machining is an important subject for scientific research with
application in industry. The term ³machining² is used to cover chip
formation operations - turning, milling, drilling and grinding, for example.
In the engineering industry, there has been renewed interest in high speed
Recently, the use of advanced materials has increased in various areas of
science and technology due to their special mechanical and physical
properties. Advanced materials are characterised by a combination of light
weight, very high strength and a high stiffness.
Therefore, advanced materials have replaced conventional materials in
various fields of application such as aeronautical, aerospace, automotive,
biomechanical and mechanical engineering, as well as in other industries. As
result of these properties and potential applications, there exits an urgent
need to understand questions associated with the machinability of these
The objectives of the IJMMM are to establish a channel of communication and
to disseminate knowledge between academic/research institutions and
practical industrial applications.
IJMMM publishes original papers; research papers; review papers; technical
papers, technical notes; short communications; discussion on papers; case
