An investigation of attritious and fracture wear of grinding wheels in precision grinding is described in a two paper sequence. Attritious wear, the subject of this first paper, refers to the dulling of the abrasive grain due to rubbing against the workpiece surface. The amount of dulling, measured by the area of the wear flats on the surface of the wheel, is found to be directly related to the grinding forces. In general, both the vertical and horizontal grinding force components increase linearly with the wear flat area. This is explained by considering the grinding force as the sum of a cutting force due to chip formation and a sliding force due to rubbing between the wear flats and workpiece. Related studies of wheel dressing, surface finish, and workpiece burn are also presented.
