Determination of the Thermal Load Distribution in . - Science DirectDuring grinding processes, numerous grains interact with the workpiece material producing mechanical and thermal loads on the surface. . In this work, a novel approach to determining a heat source distribution based on a geometric-kinematic simulation for internal traverse grinding .. radius of the workpiece, is stored.thermal store material for grinding,Energy Partition to the Workpiece for Grinding with Aluminum Oxide .lower grinding temperatures and a greatly reduced tendency for thermal damage to .. These materials have very similar thermal properties: thermal conductivity k. = 60.5 W/mK and volumetric specific heat pc = 3.4 x 106. J/m3K. All workpiece specimens were 100 . temperature and power data were recorded and stored.
