This study investigates numerical simulation and theoretical modeling of transverse compressive failure in fiber reinforced composite materials. Firstly, numerical simulation of transverse compressive failure is conducted in order to understand the physical mechanism of the transverse compressive failure. The simulated results show that multiple shear bands appear in the material, and one of the shear bands develop to the entire material, and the transverse compressive failure is formed in the material. The material strength is associated with the initiation of shear band in the material due to localized stress concentration. Based on the mechanism in the numerical simulation, the theoretical modeling of transverse compressive failure is implemented. The model shows that the critical stress value of the material is represented by fiber volume fraction, matrix Poisson’s ratio, matrix yield stress and angle of shear band.
