Abstract. The paper deals with numerical and analytical modelling of retention of a diamond particle in a metallic matrix. The model of a diamond particle embedded in a metallic matrix was created using the Abaqus software. The analytical model of an elastic spherical particle in an elastic-plastic matrix was built. The aim of the paper was to determine the influence of the mechanical and thermal parameters of matrix materials on their retentive properties. The analysis has indicated mechanical parameters responsible for the retention of diamond particles in a metallic matrix. The pressure in the particle and the radius of plastic zone around particle were analyzed.
