A modeling framework and the associated simulation tools are presented for the prediction of the mechanical behaviour and lifetime of CMC with self-healing matrix. A macroscopic anisotropic damage model enriched with micro information has been developed, identified and validated using experimental information at different levels including reaction kinetics, fiber failure probability or macroscopic mechanical behavior. The computational cost associated to the proposed model being quite expansive, a method has been setup to construct, automatically, reduced numerical constitutive laws. An illustration is given as well as the associated error estimation.
