|Summary||This paper deals with problems of yarn debonding. Taking into account this type of damage is very important to predict the rupture of structures made with 4D Carbon/Carbon composite. This type of damage occurs principally in that material near free surfaces. This is due to an edge effect which modifies the local distribution of the stresses near a free surface. The study of this phenomenon is made at a meso scale with 3 constituents: the fibers, the matrix and the interfaces. A non-linear-damage model is introduced for the interface. Large scale F. E. calculations are done using special numerical methods adapted to such problems: a domain decomposition approach associated with the LATIN method.
