Reinforced nanocomposites that are subject to frequent deformation should withstand repeated mechanical loadings for their applications as energy absorbing and high-impact resistant materials, therefore, it is very critical to predict their mechanical properties under large shear. Here, the nonlinear mechanical response of a model composite system, poly(styrene)-SiO2, is analyzed to reveal the elastic stress contributions from the particle network and polymer and explain their mechanical properties at a wide range of strain amplitudes.
