This article is in two parts describing the analysis and simulation of the disc dressing process and its effect on grinding performance. This part is concerned with the generation of the wheel surface by a diamond disc dresser. A new stochastic model of the prediction of wheel topography by diamond disc dresser is developed. It predicts the number of active grains per unit area and average slope of grains of the alumina grinding wheel. This model is based on the fracture of grits and it considers the kinematical influences of the disc dressing process on wheel surface. It is possible to analyze the effects of changing dressing parameters on the wheel topography. The topography that is generated from this model provides a basis for further prediction of the grinding performance.
