This book examines the dynamics, chaos and complexity in manufacturing processes. Part I explores the direct application of nonlinear dynamics and chaos theory to machining, grinding, and rolling processes. Part II examines promising new concepts in nonlinear dynamics that may have direct uses in manufacturing processes which include: impact, friction, and fracture dynamics to control methods that harness the theory of chaotic dynamics.
