Several aspects are considered to get a comprehensive fracture pull-out model, they are: (1) Fracture capacity of embedded fiber is a function of Poisson's ratio of fiber, (2) some stages exist during the fracture pull-out process, (3) a 'jagged' phenomenon exists on strain-hardening part of load-displacement (P-[delta]) and stress-strain ([sigma]-[epsilon]) curves of pull-out, and (4) unstable and stable fracture process phenomenon exist during the fracture pull-out process.
