material consisting of unsaturated polyester resin (UP) and alumina trihydrate (ATH) shows good mechanical and physical properties.
It is expected that the particulate composite
to show lower mechanical properties but higher dimensional stability.
It was observed that the imprint patterns on the particulate composite
(COEX) could be identified according to effectiveness in impact energy dissipation.
Numerical Modelling of Particulate Composite
with a Hyperelastic Matrix
The researchers had spent much time on modelling the properties of a particulate composite
on the basis of its components' properties and many solutions were purposed (Torquato et al.

Cutting-Edge Nanotechnology Particulate Composite
System Could Revolutionize Drug Delivery Methods to Treat Major Diseases.
Abstract: The main objective of this paper is the numerical investigation of fracture behaviour in polymeric particulate composite
with rigid particles.
Called "Smart III," this novel particulate composite
technology allows for the storage and delivery of one or more drugs within each particle's nano-layer.
It is also well known that macroscopic properties of a particulate composite
depend mostly on nature and quality of matrix-particle interface but they depend also on nature and dimensions of particles.
There are many studies regarding the influence of certain fillers on the properties of a particulate composite
, regarding the influence of the reinforcement on the properties of a fibrous composite etc but generally these studies refer to a class of properties like thermal, or electrical, or electromagnetic.
Generally, the addition of rigid particles to a polymer matrix will have an embrittling effect on the particulate composite
