Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) are widely used in aerospace, defense industry, and other fields because of their high strength, high toughness, and high temperature resistance. The interface phase with matching performance and structural coordination is the key element to improve the brittleness of CMCs and improve their strength and toughness. In this chapter, based on the fiber pull-out experiment, using the cohesive zone model as the interface element model, a two-dimensional axisymmetric fiber pull-out finite element model was established and simulated. The results show that within a certain range, higher interface bonding strength and interface fracture energy increase the maximum debonding load during fiber pull-out and enhance the material bearing capacity.
