The latest information indicates that the United States now spends in excess of $150 billion annually to perform its metal removal tasks using conventional machining technology. That estimate is increased from $115 billion 5 years ago. It becomes clear that metal removal technology is a very important candidate for rigorous investigation looking toward improvement of productivity within the manufacturing system. To aid in that endeavor, an extensive program of research has developed within the industrial community with the express purpose of establishing a new scientific and applied base that will provide principles upon which new manufacturing decisions can be made. One of the metal removal techniques that has the potential for great economic advantages is high-rate metal removal with related technologies. This text is concerned with the field of grinding as a subset of the general field of high-rate metal removal. Related processes (not covered in this text) include such topics as turning, drilling, and milling. In the final evaluation, the correct decision in the determination of a grinding process must necessarily include an understanding of the other methods of metal removal. The term grinding, as used herein, includes polishing, buffing, lapping, and honing as well as conventional definition: "... removing either metallic or other materials by the use of a solid grinding wheel".

Principles of Modern Grinding Technology, Second Edition, provides insights into modern grinding technology based on the author’s 40 years of research and experience in the field. It provides a concise treatment of the principles involved and shows how grinding precision and quality of results can be improved and costs reduced. Every aspect of the grinding process--techniques, machines and machine design, process control, and productivity optimization aspects--come under the searchlight. The new edition is an extensive revision and expansion of the first edition covering all the latest developments, including center-less grinding and ultra-precision grinding. Analyses of factors that influence grinding behavior are provided and applications are presented assisted by numerical examples for illustration. The new edition of this well-proven reference is an indispensible source for technicians, engineers, researchers, teachers, and students who are involved with grinding processes. Well-proven source revised and expanded by undisputed authority in the field of grinding processes Coverage of the latest developments, such as ultra-precision grinding machine developments and trends in high-speed grinding Numerically worked examples give scale to essential process parameters The book as a whole and in particular the treatment of center-less grinding is considered to be unchallenged by other books

Similarly, all kinds of parts of mathematics serve as tools for other parts and for other sciences.

This thesis describes an investigation concerned with development of a grinding knowledge warehouse system (GKWS). Based on a study of previous work on knowledge management and technique for a selection of grinding conditions, the thesis proposes a novel methodology to deal with missing data in surface and cylindrical grinding using Genetic Programming. The GKWS provides a guided tool for users to support the decision-making process to provide suggestions for selecting grinding conditions using rule-based reasoning (RBR) and case-based reasoning (CBR) and it can learn from new and previous grinding cases to improve and expand the CBR cases. The GKWS developed a new methodology to deal with missing data in grinding operations. The new methodology is built on If-Then rules, mathematical equations and modelling using genetic programming (GP). Dealing with missing data improves the performance of knowledge discovery in the GKWS and the results of the CBR. The GP is developed for modelling surface roughness in cylindrical and surface grinding. The developed GP model for surface grinding shows the ability to predict the surface roughness parameter especially when the GP terminals vary and the same material and wheel are used. The discussion forum facilitates and supports transferring tacit knowledge into explicit knowledge where the users can exchange their ideas, send questions and answers, and pass on important links. The tacit knowledge is acquired directly from the knowledge engineers. The debate and discussion in GKWS will create new knowledge that is accessible and available when needed.

The grinding and abrasive processing of materials are machining techniques which use bonded or loose abrasives to remove material from workpieces. Due to the well-known advantages of grinding and abrasive processes, advances in abrasive and grinding technology are always of great import in enhancing both productivity and component quality. In order to highlight the recent progress made in this field, the editor invited 21 world-wide contributions with the aim of gathering together all of the achievements of leading researchers into a single publication. The abrasive processes covered by this volume include not only grinding and polishing, but also wire-sawing and abrasive water-jet machining. The topics covered address both fundamental aspects and novel techniques. It is therefore certain that this volume will be invaluable to production and research engineers, research students and academics working in this area.
