A simple theoretical model is developed to analyze the fiber frictional sliding resistance in a fiber bundle pushout test. The effect of the radial constraint imposed by the neighboring fibers on the stress transfer and frictional pushout stress is included in this analysis. Comparisons of theoretical results of this study and those of two existing fiber pushout models (i.e., single‐fiber pushout and three–cylinder) are also presented. For SiC–RBSN and SiC–glass composites with short embedded fiber lengths less than 1 mm, there is little difference between all these models. However, for larger embedded fiber lengths, the present model gives the highest frictional pushout stress caused by the more realistic radial constraint condition used in the analysis.
