Abstract: In this paper, the modelling of crack bridging stress vs crack opening (σ-δ) relation of ductile fiber brittle matrix composite in terms of its microscopic parameters is described. Parametric Studies are carried out to investigate the effects of various micro-parameters on the σ-δ relation. Guidelines for the choice of micro-parameters in the design of composites are then proposed.
