This paper introduces a research oriented numerical model used to simulate the fluid flow in a grinding process. Some of the most important features of the model are described, along with some results obtained. Distributions of temperatures, pressures and flow rates in and around grinding region are obtained in great detail. These results are essential in studying the influence of the fluid on the grinding process, as well as in determining the best fluid composition and supply parameters for a given application. The results agree well with global flow rates and temperature values found in literature and show the feasibility of 3-D simulations in grinding applications.
