Machining of thin wall structures is a challenging area due to the problems such as chatter and forced vibrations that arise due to low stiffness of such structures. Up to now, most of the research was driven by need to improve productivity in manufacturing of aircraft components such as airframe panels; hence, straight thin walls such as cantilever structures were considered for research in machining dynamics. However, thin wall casings and particularly thin wall assemblies that are encountered in jet engine casings are not well studied. Not only their dynamics is quite different from that of straight thin walls, they present a different set of challenges for fixturing to minimise machining vibrations.
