Methods of measuring topographical features of grinding wheels are reviewed. Each technique has advantages and limitations for resolution, measuring depth, ease of application, data analysis and interpretation. The results obtained vary according to the method and instrument employed. Advantages and difficulties experienced with different techniques are discussed. Replication techniques may be applied to overcome the difficulty of making direct measurements on large wheels and of monitoring a wheel in situ. Different replication techniques and materials are compared and suggestions made.
