The equilibrium between solid and 1iquid phases in sintered composite materials has been studied. It is shown that closed surfaces, which bound dispersed phases, influence the mechanical equilibrium between these phases. An expression is derived for a dihedral angle in composite materials, which includes values of surface tensions at the phase interfaces as well as parameters of a composite equilibrium structure (phase composition, particle contiguity and coefficients of a particle geometry).
