    Abstract

    This work explores the role of grinding machine structural loop stiffness on workpiece quality and the normal grinding forces. A long ductile workpiece made of steel uses three flanges at different lengths from the spindle's centerline to vary the structural loop stiffness during a cylindrical plunge grind. Specifically, the loop stiffness and grinding parameters (e.g., feeds and speeds) are mapped to the measured normal grinding forces, actual depth of cut, workpiece form and surface finish.
