The goal of micromechanics and analysis is to use the predictive methodology to develop tailored composites and also to make accurate predictions of their performance in service. This article reviews results derived from micromechanics analyses, based on finite-element method of unidirectional fiber reinforced metal matrix composites (MMCs). It discusses the elastic deformation and elastic-plastic deformation analysis of discontinuously reinforced MMCs. The article provides an overview of analysis of strength, fatigue, and fracture toughness for macromechanics fiber-reinforced and discontinuous reinforced composites.
