Abstract

We have considered the analytical solutions for heat transfer in wet flat grinding, assuming a linear and a constant heat flux profile, entering into the workpiece. We assume as well a constant heat transfer coefficient for the coolant acting on the workpiece surface. In order to avoid thermal damage, we provide a very fast method for the computation of the maximum temperature, which occurs on the workpiece surface in the stationary regime. We also provide a very rapid method for the numerical evaluation of the transient regime duration (relaxation time). By knowing the location of the maximum temperature and the relaxation time, we have performed an analysis for the computation optimization of the temperature evolution on the workpiece surface. This kind of analysis offers a very interesting simulation tool to avoid thermal damage during the transient regime.
