Grinding Mechanics and Advances - A Review

P. V Vinay, C. S. Rao

Abstract


The process of grinding involves the interaction between the grain and bond of the wheel to the workpiece whose properties will affect the output as the process happens. The properties of wheel which influence the creation of the ground surface are identified and categorised as length of chip, number of cutting points, chip thickness, surface roughness, force mechanics, abrasion mechanics, and fracture toughness. These afore mentioned properties are reviewed with an intention to delve upon the factors which influence the process of grinding with an overview of the underlying mechanics involved in the process which govern the outcome such as surface roughness, quality of the surface with no subsurface imperfections and minimal energy requirements.
