In recent years, a number of studies have been conducted on the fracture and deformation of single particles.1,2,3,4 A previous study dealt with deformation of single, homogeneous, brittle, and ductile polymer spheres and related their contact stresses to the bulk stresses of polymers, polystyrenes, and polycarbonates.4 In the present work, we have extended deformation of single particles to encapsulated, heterogeneous systems.
