- Description: A two-dimensional mathematical model for the thermal aspects of a grinding process is presented. The model includes heat conduction in the grinding wheel, workpiece, and coolant. The heat generation through friction, heat loss to the environment as well as debris, and the interaction among the three components are described in detail. A finite-element algorithm is implemented to solve the nonlinear problem. Numerical results, such as temperatures in the grinding wheel and workpiece, are presented.
