The interaction between two spherical, rigid inclusions in an infinite, linearly viscous, densifying medium has been studied. The stresses in the vicinity of the two spheres are highly anisotropic, with significantly enhanced rates of densification in the gap between these particles. A pairwise‐additive approximation for the densification rate of the composite is presented and compared with the composite‐sphere and self‐consistent models described by Scherer.
