    The mechanical and physical properties of engineering alumina ceramics (≥ 80% Al2O3) have been reviewed from literature data for the purpose of characterising the thermomechanical response of alumina to non-sintering manufacturing processes in engineering applications involving thermal cycles. Analytical expressions are given for temperature dependence where significant for the purpose of the work.
