AbstractA 3D two-cell representation of laminates with periodic fiber arrays is established and the corresponding periodic boundary conditions are presented. The matrix is described by a nonlinear viscoelastic material model and the fiber by an elastic one. Matrix cracking is modeled by a "smeared crack" method. The modeling of material nonlinearity, crack initiation, and growth, with appropriate periodic boundary conditions, are incorporated into a finite element model (FEM). Numerical results for five different angle-ply laminates under tensile loading are presented. The results are found to be in fair agreement with the available test data. © 2013 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
