    Abstract

    A brief review is presented of several current probabilistic models for explaining the random tensile strength behavior of fibers, generalized fiber bundles, and fiber/matrix composites. The emphasis is on assumptions, mathematical structure, methods of analysis, and physical implications with regard to the performance of such structures.
