Analysis and simulation of the grinding process. Part IV: Effects of wheel wear

By Xun Chen


A method of simulating dressing and grinding was described in Parts I and II of this paper. In Part IV, the effects of wheel wear and wheel characteristics on grinding performance are simulated and compared with experimental results. The results show that grinding performance is strongly affected by dressing conditions immediately after dressing. As grinding continues, the grinding power, and also the surface roughness, tends to converge towards similar values for all dressing conditions when the same grinding conditions are employed. Results from the simulation show that the influence of wheel wear is affected by the wheel fracture characteristics. The convergence of the grinding behaviour shown in the simulation and experiments suggests that stable grinding performance in a wheel redress life cycle may be achieved by selecting dressing conditions, taking account of the grinding behaviour
