|Summary||It is now possible to perform 3D finite element stress analysis of woven composites on desktop computers. However, to avoid drowning in the various complexities involved in assembling models requires specialized tools and techniques. This paper discusses tools and techniques used by the authors to expedite the analysis of a variety of weaves. The discussion will focus on mesh generation, periodic analysis, and data management and interpretation.
