In this paper, the tensile and shear constitutive behavior of Fiber Reinforced Cementitious Matrix (FRCM) composites is addressed. A nonlinear finite-element computational approach is developed, by accounting for the micromechanical mechanisms via the introduction of interface elements inside and between the FRCM constituents, i.e. fibers and mortar. The damage, the friction and the unilateral contact are considered for reproducing the mortar cracking and the slippage between the fibers and the mortar. The numerical approach is illustrated and it is validated with an available experimental result, highlighting the effectiveness of such proposed modeling approach for reproducing the constitutive tensile behavior of FRCM materials. Finally, the shear behavior is investigated, also considering cyclic loading patterns under different compressive load levels.
