Special Issue on: "Measurement Science in Machining Technology"

Guest Editor:
Prof. J. Paulo Davim, University of Aveiro, Portugal

Measurement science is an essential part of modern engineering and technology, but it is not easy to define. It is possible to define measurement as “the assignment of a number to a characteristic of an object or event, which can be compared with other objects or events”. For this purpose, an improvement of the technical capability to use the concept of measurement is very important for the modern manufacturing industry.

Articles with experimental and computational developments applied in measurement science in machining technology are welcome. This special issue invites submissions of high-quality research articles related to measurement science in machining technology.

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

  • Accuracy and precision
  • Data analysis
