In this study, geometric modeling and finite element analysis of 3-dimensional plain weave composite unit cell consisting of 3 interlaced fiber tows and resin pocket were performed to predict effective properties. First, tow properties were obtained from micro-mechanics finite element unit cell analysis, which were then used in the meso-mechanics analysis. The effective properties were obtained from a series of unit cell analyses simulating uniaxial tensile and shear tests. Analysis results were compared to the analysis and experimental results in the literature. Various crimp angles were considered and the effect on the effective properties was investigated. Initial failure strengths and failure sequence were also examined.
