Composite Materials, Mechanical Engineering

One can increase the toughness of a ceramic material by introducing fibers to the structure of the ceramic and create a ceramic-matrix composite. However, unlike other fiber-reinforced composites, in this case the bonding between the matrix and fiber should not be very strong. Explain how this process toughens the ceramic material.
