A statistical polyhedron model of abrasive grain is developed and its application to the design of abrasive cutting tools indicated. The model incorporates particle geometry and orientation with respect to the workpiece into a single concept useful in the prediction of cutting performance. Projective properties of the statistical polyhedron are exploited in a proposed method for measuring axial ratios of abrasive particles.
