Abstract

This project, prepared for the Saint-Gobain Abrasives group, will determine the effects of work material properties on grinding performance. Working with previous data, the team designed the parameters for a surface grinding test that employed two different grinding wheels as well as three different steel types (304 Stainless, 4340, D-3 Tool Steel). The data from this surface grinding test showed that hardness, elasticity and ultimate tensile strength have unexpected effects on grinding performance.
