Thermal Conductivity of cutting fluids with the Transient Hot Wire
Depending on the context and on which type of cutting fluid is being considered, these fluids may be referred to as cutting fluid, cutting oil, cutting compound, coolant, or lubricant. The main purposes of these fluids are to keep the object being cut at a stable temperature, maximize the life of the cutting tip, and prevent rust on machine parts and cutters.
