The creep behavior and creep fracture of sintered alumina at high temperature were investigated under four point flexural test. Steady-state creep behavior was observed at low bending stress and primary creep until fracture was observed at hish bending stress. The loading history of bending stress did not affect on steady-state creep rate. Intergranular fracture was dominant for fracture of alumina at room and high temperature. However, transgranular fracture was dominant on creep of alumina under high temperature by nucleation and growth of microcracks due to residual flaws or cavities in the material.
