The relationship between strength distribution or ground ceramics and machining condition was examined. The strength of ground silicon carbide ceramics at the failure probability of 1 percent, which is termed 1 % strength, was estimated as a function of the maximum grain depth of cut g, which is used as an index of grinding conditions. It is assumed that the fracture is governed by the competing failure mechanism between pre-existing flaws and machining cracks and that the Weibull modulus of machining cracks was independent of grinding condition. The deviation from estimated value is noticeable in small g region although experimental data of the 1% strength of ground specimen approaches that of polished ones with diminishing g. The observed discrepancy is inferred to be attributed to an increase in stress intensity factor by the interaction between a pre-existing flaw and its adjacent machining crack.
