A mathematical model of pulse electron-beam processing of a heterogeneous material with allowance for the fact that each phase (particles and the matrix) possess its own properties and thus is characterized by its own concentration and temperature has been proposed. The processes of transfer of heat and mass in particles and the matrix and exchange processes between the phases have been taken into account. An example of a partial problem enabling one to calculate the coefficients of heat and mass exchange between the phases as functions of the temperature and the particle size has been given. The influence of the character of the external heat flux on the temperature and concentration fields in particles and the matrix has been illustrated.
