In this paper, the velocity profile of the air boundary layer around a rotating grinding wheel was measured using the Laser Doppler Anemometry technique. Experimental results show that the tangential velocity of the air decreases greatly with increasing distance from the wheel surface. The distribution of the tangential velocity is also found to be almost uniform near to the centre of the wheel width, and decreases greatly as the wheel edge is approached. Generally, the radial velocity of air in the area close to the wheel surface is small, and then increases with the increasing distance from wheel surface.
