Abstract: This paper is devoted to studying influences of matrix/particle interface debonding and particulate size in micromechanical predictions of the effective moduli of particulate reinforced polymer composites (PRPC). The PRPC is regarded as a three-phase composite that includes the matrix, particle and interphase. The formulation for the effective moduli of the interphase is derived by the cohesive zone model, and combined with the Mori-Tanaka method, the micromechanical model for the effective moduli of the PRPC …
