    Abstract The purpose of this paper is the presentation of a new efficient modelling strategy based on the combination of Binary Model and Extended Finite Element Method (X-FEM). It is applied to represent the internal architecture of textile reinforced composites where the resin-saturated fabric is characterised by a complex geometry. Homogenisation methods are used to compute the effective elastic material properties. Thereby, the discrete formulation of periodic boundary conditions is adapted regarding additional degrees of freedom used by finite elements which are based on the X-FEM. Finally, the results in terms of effective material properties reveal a good agreement with parameters… More >
