Abstract Different failure mechanisms determine strength and fracture toughness of particle composites as, for example particle debonding and ductile matrix fracture. In real composites the particles are not homogeneously distributed. This leads to different levels of particle interaction under loading and consequently to higher stress concentrations in the matrix and at the particle/matrix interface for closer particles. This local inhomogeneity is modelled and the effect on stress-strain behaviour is discussed. On the other hand the variation of stresses in front of a crack also effects the stress concentration as a function of crack distance in the periphery of the local inhomogeneously distributed particles. This variation is considered for the modelling of fracture toughness of such composites. The influence of the pair distribution function on dissipation energies and on fracture toughness as a function of particle volume fraction is discussed. © (2017) COPYRIGHT Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE).
