Compressive creep studies on alumino-silicate glass reinforced with alumina powders of 0.2 μm particle size as a function of volume fraction showed that there was a significant increase in the creep resistance by about an order of magnitude in the 20 vol.% composite. In order to study the effect of particle size on creep resistance, composites reinforced with 20 vol.% of 1.2 and 6.5 $\mu$m alumina particle size were also characterized. It was found that the composite with 1.2 μm particle sized reinforcement gave the highest creep resistance. All the composites exhibited Newtonian viscous creep and showed no strain hardening even at strains up to 10%.
