Call for papers: Artificial Intelligence Applied in Machining
A special issue of the International Journal of Machining and Machinability of Materials (IJMMM)
Submission: 31 March 2008
Decision: 30 April 2008
Revised manuscripts: 31 May 2008
At the present, almost every branch of science and engineering uses the artificial intelligence tools and techniques. The industrial impact of artificial intelligence has primarily been in control and diagnosis applications; however, much research work has been done in applying these techniques in other fields.
In machining research, artificial intelligence tools have been widely used. Several topologies of neural networks (such as multilayer perceptrons, radial basis function networks and recurrent neural networks), as well as support vector machines, have been successfully applied to predictive modelling, adaptive control, tool condition diagnosis and fault detection in turning, drilling, milling, grinding and another machining processes.
Furthermore, a great variety of intelligent controllers and real-time monitoring systems, all of them based on fuzzy sets, has been reported in the specialised bibliographies. On the other hand, non-conventional meta-heuristic optimisation techniques, such as ant colony, simulated annealing and evolutionary computation, have been employed in process planning, tool paths planning and cutting parameters selection. The above-mentioned samples illustrate but do not include all applications of artificial intelligence techniques to the machining sciences.
This special issue of IJMMM invites the submission of high quality research articles on artificial intelligence applications to the machining processes.
