This work investigates the characterization of grinding wheel sharpness using Scale Sensitive Fractal Analysis and the parameters of the diamond roll plunge dressing process that influence how sharpness is generated. Replicas are taken of the grinding wheel surface and measured. Regression analysis is used to find correlations between relative areas/relative volumes of the grinding wheel and grinding wheel sharpness over a range of scales. Dressing parameters are also plotted against wheel sharpness to see if a correlation exists between them.
