Despite its long history, grinding is still an important component of a modern manufacturing process. Its important role, together with its complex nature has made the grinding process a fascinating object of extensive research in the last 30 years. This thesis reports research focused on two issues in grinding: topographical characterisation of the grinding wheel surface and modelling of the grinding process.
