The present paper discusses the experimental results and analysis of PRSR, dimensional accuracy, and material removal rate as the responses in cylindrical grinding of EN24 steel. The work material chosen was EN24, a popular grade of thorough-hardening alloy steel. The Taguchi design of experiments using L18 orthogonal array was used. It is observed from the experimental work that the input factors depth of cut has statistically significant effect on the PRSR. Material removal rate increases linearly with increase in wheel speed. Dimensional deviation is maximum for work speed of 180 rpm and it is minimum for work speed of 250 rpm.
