Calculation of the Contact Stiffness of Grinding Wheel
It is considered that the contact stiffness between the grinding wheel and the workpiece depends on the number of the abrasive grains in contact with the workpiece and the support stiffness of a single abrasive grain. In this paper, the calculating method of the theoritical contact stiffness of grinding wheel in grinding operation was proposed. Comparing calculated results of the contact stiffness in grinding operation with measured it in the stationary state, the contact stiffness of the grinding wheel in grinding operation was investigated.
