In precision abrasive machining, it is important to control process variables such as the material removal rate, normal force and power input, as these factors influence surface finish, dimensional precision, and material damage. In this research, a linear grinding process model, with enhancements over past models, is developed relating normal force to material removal rates. Two experimental procedures for the determination of the grinding model’s parameters are presented. Simulations are performed to validate the grinding model. The determined model is found to be a valid representation of the grinding process that should prove useful in adaptive control with real-time parameter estimation.
