A Model for Estimation of Convection Heat Transfer Coefficient of Fluid through the Grinding Zone
The grinding fluid is typically used to provide functions such as lubrication and cooling in order to reduce surface grinding temperatures effectively in order to achieve better work-piece surface integrity and higher wheel life. This paper investigates the convection heat transfer coefficient of fluid based on the fluid dynamic and thermal modelling within the grinding zone under different grinding condition. This work makes it possible to determine a suitable value of the useful flowrate fluid through the grinding contact arc under optimization of the wheel speed, work speed and jet velocity of nozzle. Its simplicity and accuracy allow application to a wide range of grinding situations from shallow to high efficiency deep grinding.
