Fiber pull-out is one of the fracture features of fiber-reinforced ceramic matrix composites. The onset of this mechanism is predicted by using continuum damage mechanics, and corresponds to a localization of deformation. After deriving two damage models from a uniaxial bundle approach, different configurations are analyzed through numerical methods. For one model some very simple criteria can be derived, whereas for the second one none of these criteria can be derived and the general criterion of localization must be used.
