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.
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.

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.
