The main body of grinding knowledge comes from the experiments done by independent investigators. If such experimental results are not made both human- and machine-comprehensible from the very beginning, then it would be difficult to reuse the results using a computerized network or any other means. In this respect, intelligent systems are needed to create human- and machine-comprehensible models of important results like 3D surface finish, cutting force, tool wear, etc. From this perspective, this paper describes a method for modeling and simulation of 3D surface finish of grinding. A human-friendly simulation tool is developed to implement the method. The simulation result is compared with the real 3D surface finish and a close correlation is found. The presented model can be integrated with the collaborative machining networks for better utilization of grinding resources using computers (e.g., condition monitoring, process planning, automation) and even using humans (e.g., effective exchange of information among peers in the research community and in the industry).
