Existing analytical thermal models for predicting surface burns due to grinding have limited use because of their reliance on parameters that are not readily obtainable in practice. This paper presents a practical and consistent fuzzy rule based model for estimating the grinding conditions at which ‘‘burn limits’’ occur. The model consists of 37 absolute and eight relative rules. It has a wide range of applications over many types of steels, Alundum wheels, and grinding conditions. It is also simple to implement, from a rule chart mode to an intelligent online adaptive control mode.
