Particulate composites include concrete, tyre rubber, plastic explosives and certain brands of confectionery. The effect of the microstructure of these materials on their large-strain deformation properties is by no means a closed book – whilst modern computational power does allow researchers to plug volumetric models wholesale into finite element codes, there is still a role for experiment to play. Here, some experiments into the effect of fill-density and particle size are reported.
