  2. This paper presents a study of the Bövik-Benveniste methodology for high order imperfect interface modeling of steady-state conduction problems involving coated spherical particles. Two types of imperfect interface models, that reduce the original three-phase configuration problem to the two-phase configuration problem, are discussed. In one model, the effect of the layer is accounted for via jumps in the field variables across the traces of its boundaries, while in the other via corresponding jumps across the trace of its mid-surface. Explicit expressions for the jumps are provided for both models up to the third order. The obtained higher order jump conditions are incorporated into the unit cell model of spherical particle composite. The multipole expansion method is used to derive the convergent series solutions to the corresponding boundary value problems. Numerical examples are presented to demonstrate that the use of higher order imperfect interface models allows for accurate evaluation of the local fields and overall conductivity of composites reinforced with coated spherical particles.
  3. The model of an anisotropic interface in an elastic particulate composite with initial stress is developed as the first-order approximation of a transversely isotropic interphase between an isotropic matrix and spherical particles. The model involves eight independent parameters with a clear physical meaning and conventional dimensionality. This ensures its applicability at various length scales and flexibility in modeling the interfaces, characterized by the initial stress and discontinuity of the displacement and stress fields. The relevance of this model to the theory of material interfaces and its applicability in nanomechanics is discussed. The proposed imperfect interface model is incorporated in the unit cell model of a spherical particle composite with thermal stress owing to uniform temperature change. The rigorous solution to the model boundary value problem is obtained using the multipole expansion method. The reported accurate numerical data confirm the correctness of the developed theory, provide an estimate of its accuracy and applicability limits in the multiparticle environment, and reveal significant effects of the interphase or interface anisotropy and initial stress on the local fields and overall thermoelastic properties of the composite.
