A study of the effect of an elastic spherical particle embedded in an infinite elastic-plastic matrix subject to hydrostatic tension is presented. Two types of particles will be considered: (1) a perfectly fitting inclusion, (2) a misfitting one. A numerical solution is developed to solve the governing equations. Various combinations of elastic constants and power hardening coefficients are studied for different load levels. The analysis is concentrated on the interfacial normal stresses and its dependence on the different parameters.
