© 2017 Elsevier LtdThe study of mechanical response of materials at small length scales has gained importance due to the recent advances in micro- and nano-fabrication as well as testing systems. However, most of the reported work has been dedicated to investigate single-crystals or boundary-containing metallic systems, while much less attention has been paid to composite materials, and in particular those combining soft and hard phases. In this work, a systematic procedure is followed for mach...
