A mathematical model is developed for the analysis of the fiber debonding phase of a pull-out experiment where the matrix is supported at the same end as the fiber is loaded in tension. The mechanical properties of the fiber/matrix are described in terms of two parameters, a fracture energy for fiber/matrix debonding and a frictional sliding shear stress. Results for the debond length and fiber debond displacement are compared with results from similar models for single fiber pull-out experiments where the specimen is gripped at the end opposite to the end where the fiber is pulling-out and with results for a single fiber fragmentation test.
