Ceramic matrix composites (CMCs) reinforced with continuous fibers exhibit several features that differentiate them from homogeneous unreinforced materials. The microstructure consists of various distinct constituents: fibres, matrix, and fiber/matrix interfaces or interphases. Several entities at micro- and mesoscopic length scales can be defined depending on fiber arrangement. Furthermore, the CMCs contain flaw populations that govern matrix cracking and fiber failures. The paper describes the microstructure-behavior relations for ceramic matrix composites reinforced with continuous fibers. It focuses on matrix damage by multiple cracking, on ultimate fracture, on delayed fracture at high temperatures, and on stochastic features induced by flaw populations. Models of damage and ultimate failure are based on micromechanics and fracture probabilities. They provide a basis for a multiscale approach to composite and component design.
