Effect of hollow inclusion-matrix debonding on the elastic properties of particulate composites

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

This work aims at understanding the effect of particle-matrix interfacial debonding on the elastic properties of hollow-particle filled composites. A series solution based on the Gakerkin method is derived for a hollow-inclusion embedded in an infinite matrix at various debonding levels. The results show stress intensification at particle-matrix interface along with a remarkable dependence of the composite stiffness on the debonding extent.
