Distributions of the heat flux to the workpiece and the convection heat transfer coefficient on the workpiece surface during straight surface grinding are estimated from measured temperatures in the workpiece subsurface using inverse heat transfer methods developed in Part 1. The results indicate that the heat flux to the workpiece is distributed approximately linearly (triangular heat source) along the grinding zone with about 70 to 75 percent of the total energy transported as heat to the workpiece for grinding of steels with a conventional aluminum oxide wheel and only about 20 percent with CBN superabrasive wheels. The wheel-workpiece contact length corresponding to the region of positive heat flux to the workpiece is found to be generally close to but slightly longer than the theoretical geometric contact length. The convection heat transfer coefficient for cooling by the applied grinding fluid is greatest just behind the trailing edge of the grinding zone where fluid is directly applied, and negligible ahead of the grinding zone.
