Abstract A meshless local Petrov-Galerkin method, for the micro-mechanical material model of woven fabric composite material is presented in this paper. The material models are based on a repeated unit cell approach and two smooth fibre modes. A unit step function is used as the test functions in the local weak-form which leads to local boundary integral equations. The analysed domain is divided into small sub-domains and the radial basis function interpolation without element mesh is adopted. The woven fabric composite elastic moduli evaluated have been shown to be in good agreement with finite element results.
