A soft particle model [12] is used in analyzing particle-particle and particle-wall interactions in this paper.
which is valid both for the soft particle and for the hard particle.
In 1979, Cundall and Strack [30] proposed the soft particle discrete method which is considered as one of the powerful tools for handling particulate systems.
Clear, haze-free films were not guaranteed (1) and block resistance properties were subject to the ratio and size of the hard polymer to soft particle. (2)
The primary benefit of rigid particle toughening over traditional soft particle toughening is that both modulus and toughness can be improved in the polymer.

Although the soft particle latex gives an average diameter of 204 nm the distribution spans particle diameters between 100 and 300-400 nm with a well defined maximum.
For DEM, the most commonly used force-displacement models follow a "soft particle" approach, where a particle is considered to be a rigid body and any deformation of that particle as a result of its collision with another particle or surface is represented by a small virtual overlap.

Thus, the emission of Sparks from the same deterior ated Electric Cables/Wires would result in igniting the very soft particles of the Cotton - fibres which would cause Major Fires all around, engulfing everything in the vicinity.
This occurred because, when small particles are subjected to high field intensities, they create magnetic masses from the soft particles created.
