*µ*m and submicronic ones. In each fraction, the particle diameter varies randomly, but between the fractions, the average particle diameter differs by several orders of magnitude. It is assumed that the small particles, together with the matrix, behave as a homogeneous medium relative to the large ones. By using this model, the mechanical behavior of composites based on elastomers filled with different volume contents of solid particles is investigated.
