Natural stones are widely used in construction sector. Physico-mechanical properties of natural stones are very important for their in terms of areas of use. Abrasion Resistance of natural stones is an important phenomenon for leads to decrease in mechanical and aesthetical properties. Böhme abrasion (BA) test are the most widely used test methods for determining abrasion resistance.In this study, 8 different natural stones were tested for their abrasion resistance, flexural strength and uniaxial compressive strength. Relationships between Böhme abrasion resistance and the strength properties were investigated on the basis of experimental results by using Minitab 18 and meaningful relationships were obtained between Böhme abrasion resistance and strength properties. Statistical equations have been determined for estimating the abrasion resistance of natural stone using uniaxial compressive strength and flexual strength.
