Abstract

The viscoelastic behavior of particulate composites constituted of a polymer matrix reinforced by various volume fractions of spherical particles is predicted through an original modeling, taking into account the formation of clusters and the maximum volumetric packing fraction of inclusions.

Résumé

Le comportement visco-élastique de composites constitués d’une matrice de polymère renforcée de particules sphériques de volume partiel variable, est represénté à l’aide d’un nouveau modèle prenant en compte la formation d’agrégats ainsi que le volume maximal de compacité des inclusions.
