For easy and practical simulation of microscopic nonlinear mechanical behavior of composite materials, new homogenization analysis procedure named macro-micro uncoupled method is proposed. In this procedure, microscopic simulation of material strength test is carried out first, then nonlinear homogenized material properties are obtained. Both the homogenization method and RVE (Representative Volume Element) approach are shown for this microscopic simulation. Macroscopic nonlinear behavior of a structure made of composite materials can be analyzed by only referring the pre-calculated homogenized material nonlinearity. As an example, microscopic fracture propagation for textile composite materials and microscopic large deformation for porous elastic materials are analyzed.
