For cost-effective ceramic machining, material-specific machining methodology is needed. This requires characterizing ceramics from machining view point. In this paper, a preliminary study of the correlation between grindability and mechanical properties is reported. Results indicate that there exists complex correlations between grindability and mechanical properties such as hardness, fracture toughness and elasticity. Some ceramics of similar mechanical properties have different grindabilities, which implies that it is possible to develop ceramics of both superior mechanical properties and good grindability.
