An analytical temperature distribution along the cutting edge and on the flank face of a drill is obtained using Tsueda’s and Loewen and Shaw’s equations after modifications. Experimental temperature distributions are also investigated and the effects of a pilot hole and the heat sink are evaluated. Agreement between the analytical and experimental results is fairly close except near the chisel edge and near the drill periphery. The use of workpieces containing a pilot hole provides a method to account for the discrepancy between the analytical solution and the experimental results near the chisel edge while some explanation is offered to describe the discrepancy near the drill periphery.
