Abstract: The multi-scale method is adopted in damage analysis of plain woven composites. The microscopic Repeated Unit Cell (RUC) model for yarn was studied firstly with appropriate failure criteria, thus elastic and strength properties were obtained. Then these results were applied to failure research in the mesoscopic-repeated unit cell model for woven composite. The predicted results by the present method are compared with the experimental data and good correlation is observed.
