Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

  • Quality improvement in mechanical micro drilling of titanium alloy under dry conditions   Order a copy of this article
    by Somashekhar S. Hiremath, Prashanth P 
    Abstract: Titanium alloy (CpTi) grade II is considered a hard-to-cut material due to low thermal conductivity, work hardening behavior, and affinity with cutting tool materials. In this study, micro-holes are machined on titanium alloy (Cp Ti) grade II under dry conditions. Experiments are carried out by varying the machining parameters like cutting speed (5 m/min, 6.9 m/min, and 8.8 m/min), feed (5

  • Effect of Nano-void Position on Surface Integrity in Nanomachining of Single Crystal Copper   Order a copy of this article
    by Seyed Vahid Hosseini, Mehdi Heidari, Hadi Parvaz, Mehrdad Vahdati 
    Abstract: In this paper, molecular dynamics simulations were performed to study the effect of nano-size voids in different locations relative to the surface on nanomachining characteristics and surface integrity. Using EAM potential, MD simulations were performed with two approaches: material removal and relaxation of the work material, to find a low defect permanent configuration after the rigid tool has traversed the machined area. Results show that high hydrostatic pressure induced by tool edge diffuses atoms into the void during the machining process. Investigation of residual stress for subsurface void workpiece represents that higher compressive stress remains in the surface due to the tendency of void for spring back. Besides, in the nanomachining process, surface atoms are greatly disordered and dislocation loops glide deep into substrate atoms. After relaxation, if void pitting contains no other atoms, the machined surface is reorganized as FCC lattice similar to a pure workpiece.
