The text presented here, in its major Part A, is a comprehensive discussion of self-excited vibrations in machining with special emphasis in its illustrations and conclusions on milling and, mainly, on ultra-high-speed end milling. It is heavily based on a number of previous research papers of the author, which were mostly coauthored by F. Ismail, whose contributions are gratefully acknowledged. He worked for the past seven years, first as a Ph.D. student and subsequently as a research engineer, in the author’s laboratory. The sections on the effect of spindle speed and on special cutters is based on the work of W. Zaton, who was another research collaborator of the author. In Part B the problems of deflections and of forced vibrations of end mills and their effect on accuracy of machining are discussed. These problems are significant in end milling of aerospace structures and, in this instance, also in ultra-high-speed milling.
