This chapter presents experimental as well as modelling and simulation approaches to investigate a high-performance surface grinding process. The complex material removal mechanisms generate transient cutting forces that cover a wide range of excitation frequencies. The generated cutting forces impact the grinding machine and lead to deformations, which depend on the machine’s mechanical properties. In general, these deformations have an influence on the cutting forces. Deformations lead to a change of the depth of cut and, therefore, the cutting forces change. Thus, there are three aspects of great importance: the process, the machine and the process machine interaction. Advances in investigating the process are covered first. Afterwards, a new approach to model the machine, its deformation behavior and the way the machine interacts with the process will be described.
