Abstract Proceedings of the European Conference on Constitutive Models for Rubber, Dresden, 7-10 September 2009<br /><br />For the analysis of formation of polymeric layers with particular properties that arise near filler particles in a filled elastomeric material, a mathematical model has been developed. The model is based on the hypothesis that the oriented regions of the polymer are able to influence the orientation state of neighboring regions. The periodicity cell of the elastomeric material filled with rigid spherical particles is examined. Formation of layers in the space between particles and away from it is modelled. The results of numerical simulation show that in the material near filler particles there occur regions where polymeric molecules are in uniaxial and biaxial states.<br /><br />ISBN 978-0-415-56327-7
