Abstract: The mechanical behaviour of textile structures is one of their most important characteristics as far as their end use is concerned. Textile structures, fabrics, or yarns are often considered as continuous mediums apart from the fact that they are composed of some discrete elements, individual fibres composing yarns and yarns composing fabrics. This is known as the transition scale, a very important lock to be considered, to evaluate the real structure behaviour. In this context, this work presents some simulations of the mechanical behaviour of a fabric where the yarn is a continuum material. Particular attention was paid to simultaneous loading in uniaxial or biaxial extension and shear loadings. The results of numerical simulations, which show the deformed fabric unit cell under multi-load conditions, are coherent with experimental observations and encourage the authors to continue the present work with parametrical and inverse case studies.
