The aim of this study was to evaluate ultrasonic P-wave velocity as a feature for predicting some physical andmechanical properties that describe the behavior of local building limestone. To this end, both ultrasonic testing and compressive tests were carried out on several limestone specimens and statistical correlation between ultrasonic velocity and density, compressive strength, and modulus of elasticity was studied.The effectiveness of ultrasonic velocity was evaluated by regression, with the aim of observing the coefficient of determinatio
