The effect of type of microstructure and volume content of filler and binder on the internal stress field and shear modulus has been analyzed for various composite materials. There is an "optimum" filler content at which the maximum stresses in the structure are lowest. A quantitative estimate is obtained for the error of the approximate formulas for the shear modulus of various types of structure.
