In this paper we present a comprehensive dynamic model that simulates surface grinding processes and predict their regenerative chatter characteristics. The model considers special aspects in surface grinding processes, such as interrupted grinding on a series of surfaces and step-like wheel wear along the axial direction due to crossfeed. A new theory for the wheel regenerative chatter mechanism, which describes the regenerative force as a function of not only the instantaneous chip thickness but also the distributed uneven grit wear/dullness, is introduced and applied in the model. Using the model, explanations are provided for those unrevealed wheel regenerative chatter phenomena observed from the experimental results in literature. The model is validated by comparing the simulated chatter frequencies and thresholds with the experimental results.

Three tests by Thompson (6) with different fixture setups under the chatter condition, which show that dominant chatter frequencies are very close to multiplications of an integer n and wheel rotational speeds: The spikes on the top show the marks per wheel revolution, and the waves on the bottom are the vibration signal
