It has been addressed that one of the factors that has a significant impact on the properties of the composite is the fiber/matrix interface that would increase the interfacial levels of the stresses which will reduce the overall composite stiffness and the fatigue lifetime eventually causing composite failure. Besides it has been concluded that interfacial stresses play a major role in the deterioration of the composite characteristics due to increase in the possibility of the debonding between fiber/matrix zone that will raise the interfacial levels of the stresses and lead to the failure at the end. Different methods have been adopted experimentally and theoretically to understand the mechanism of interfacial failure between fiber/matrix in the composite. In this chapter, we focus on the simulation and the mathematical model that has been developed and used to investigate the impact of the fiber/matrix role in the deterioration and the failure of the composite using micromechanics, finite element method, and other methods.
