The aerospace industry is driving the use of advanced materials such as titanium alloys, aluminum alloys and composites, and requires large monolithic and hybrid structures. The properties of these materials and their complex architecture make them difficult to machine. Particular problems include rapid tool wear and chatter.

The aim of this special issue is to provide in-depth analysis of machining titanium alloys, nickel alloys, composites and hybrid materials.

Subject Coverage
Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Machining of titanium, composite and aluminium alloys
  • Drilling of composite materials and hybrid materials (CFRP, CFRP/Al, CFRP/Ti, etc.)
  • Trimming of composite materials
  • Water jet cutting and machining of composites
  • Machining of super alloys
  • Non-traditional machining of aerospace materials
  • Quality of machining
  • Tool wear
  • Modelling of machining process
