Griffith energy theory was developed for analysis of crack propagation along an interface in polymers filled with rigid spherical inclusions. A polydisperse structural model was used for stress-strain distribution analysis of composite materials. Experiments were performed on glass-bead filled polyethylene and polypropylene and epoxy resin. The dependence of debonding stresses and angles on contraction stress, friction, particle diameter and material characteristics were analysed.
