Experimental Study on Microstructure Evolution in AISI D2 Steel Surface Grinding
The microstructure evolution of ground subsurface in AISI D2 steel surface grinding was investigated in this study. The effect of grinding parameters and grain size of wheels on white layer formation was presented. The surface integrity parameters of microstructure and microhardness were measured and analyzed. It was found that the white layer and dark layer may occur more easily when using finer grain size of wheel and white layer and dark layer may occur with the increase of grinding parameters, such as wheel rotation speed, workpiece speed and depth of cut.
