Abstract

The effect of selected grinding parameters on the flexural strength of a sialon ceramic was studied. Support compliance was found to have no significant effect, while depth of incursion and grinding direction did. Weibull statistics and analysis of variance techniques were used to detect these effects which are explained through flaw magnitude and direction.
