A model of heat transfer in grinding has been developed that considers heat removed from the grinding zone by the workpiece, abrasive grains, and grinding fluid. This model eliminates the need to specify the fraction of the total grinding power that enters the workpiece, or the convection coefficient due to the grinding fluid. The dependence of the workpiece temperature on the various grinding parameters has been explored.
