|Summary|| Internal variables modeling the degradation mechanisms occurring in brittle-matrix composites are related to microscopic quantities by using a probabilistic approach to failure. Two examples are presented. The first one deals with matrix-cracking and the second one is concerned with debonding and slip. In both cases, it is shown that in general the moments of order higher than one are needed to describe the behavior in a Continuum Mechanics framework.
||Keywords|| Continuum thermodynamics, state potential, internal variables, matrix-cracking, debonding and slip, fiber breakage, failure probability.
