In this paper, a numerical code, Realistic Failure Process Analysis code (RFPA), was used to perform a microscopic analysis of a crack in a fiber-reinforced ceramic, when the crack length is the same order of magnitude as the fiber spacing. The numerical results performed in the paper shown the failure process of fiber-reinforced ceramic subjected to tension loading, which indicate that the reinforcing fibers in a ceramic composite have a significant effect in inhibiting crack propagation even during the stages of the development of crack. Moreover, the fiber evidently increased the load-carrying capacity.
