Time-delay systems appear in several engineering problems, such as wheel shimmy [230, 257, 273, 274], car-following traffic models [213, 214, 215], feedback stabilization problems [194, 284, 252, 113], and machine tool chatter [280, 281, 255, 5]. In this chapter, engineering models are considered in which the time delay is coupled with parametric forcing. The first example to be discussed is the turning process with varying spindle speed, which is described by a DDE with time-periodic delay.
