Abstract: In this paper polymeric particulate composites are studied. Especially on polypropylene (PP) matrix and mineral fillers was focused. Polymeric particulate composites are frequently used in many engineering applications. The composite was modeled as a three-phase continuum — matrix, interphase and particle. The properties of the particles and interphase (size, shape, material properties) have a significant effect on the global behaviour of the composite. On the basis of fracture mechanics methodology the interaction of micro-crack propagation in the matrix filled by rigid particles covered by the interphase was analyzed. Effect of the loading direction on mechanical properties of polymeric particulate composites is studied here.
