Abstract: This study forms the second part of a paper on the local damage analysis in a thermo-plastic 5-harness satin weave composite under uni-axial static tensile load. The experimental observations of Part I are confronted with the meso-FE simulations Part II describes the following steps regarding the unit cell meso-FE modelling starting from. (1) construction of the unit cell geometrical model: (2) estimation of the homogenized elastic constants of the unit cell using different boundary conditions, (3) evaluation of the local stress and damage behavior of the unit cell using meso-FE simulations. The aim of the numerical analysis is to investigate the dependency of local ply stress and damage profiles on the adjacent layers of the laminate
