Abstract: Advanced ceramic materials become more and more important for industrial applications, where resistance against wear, high temperatures and chemicals is primordial. However, compared with metals, advanced ceramics are very difficult to cut due to the elevated hardness. Ultrasonic assisted grinding (UAG) is a very promising process to increase efficiency and reduce costs of machining ceramic materials. The first objective of this doctoral research is to acquire a better understanding of several aspects of ultrasonic assisted grinding: the influence of vibration on process forces and surface quality, the influence of the machining system and tool wear. A second objective of this research is to increase technological knowledge, in order to make this promising process better accessible for industry. Different aspects are discussed: machining parameters, conditions and strategies
