There is a growing interest in understanding the residual stress state in particulate composites that contain a thin interfacial phase. In this work, new analytical solutions were obtained for the residual stresses in composites with (1) a coated particle in an infinite matrix and (2) finite concentration of coated particles. The explicit expressions provided an easy evaluation of the influence of constituent properties on residual stresses in such systems. The interactions amongst the constituents are complicated but are demonstrated graphically in an example.
