In transverse grinding, the wheel moves along the workpiece, which induces unique grinding dynamics. To understand these dynamic phenomena, specifically the grinding chatter, a new dynamical model of the process is proposed, in which the wheel position is assumed to be quasi-static since the transverse wheel velocity is small. From the stability and bifurcation analyses of the chatter vibration, it appears that the dynamics of the process is governed by the quasi-static interactions. Moreover, the obtained results also show that the wheel and workpiece chatters are quite different, having continuous and intermittent characters respectively. (C) 2013 Elsevier Ltd.
