The aim of this work is to numerically model two representative twill and satin weaves on a mesoscopical level in order to reveal weave specific yarn interactions. These mesoscopical models that explicitly depict each participating yarn are subjected to uniaxial tension, quasi-static biaxial tension and pure shear loading. The material response of both weaves will be investigated and compared to experimental results performed earlier by Rohr and Harwick .
