Grind-hardening process has a history of almost 20 years. Since its introduction, numerous studies have been presented focusing on a number of aspects of the process such as the modelling of the process, the impact of the process parameters, the grinding wheel importance, etc. In the present chapter, the relevant literature to grind-hardening process is classified and summarized. More than 100 papers have been reviewed.
