In the simplest case the grinding layer of a grinding wheel consists of bond material, pores and abrasive grains. Besides these there can be various other components that tune the properties of the grinding wheel (e.g. pore formation agents, secondary grain). These more complex systems complicate the comparison between different kinds of grinding wheels. In this publication we propose new methods for the quantification of mechanical and structural properties in grinding wheels, as well as methods for the characterisation of wear types. These new methods aim to facilitate the evaluation of newly developed grinding layers by providing new information about the individual grain wear, and characteristic values for the grinding layer’s homogeneity, and the ability to accommodate diamond grains.
