This study focuses on the compressive failure mechanism in the form of kinkband formation in fiber composites. Taking into account the non-linearities of the constituents, a constitutive model for unidirectional layered materials has been developed and incorporated as a user material in a commercially available finite element code to study effects of kinkband inclination angle and micro-geometry on kinkband formation. The localization of deformation into a single kinkband is studied. In the post failure regime a state is reached where deformation in the kinkband gets stabilized and the kinkband broadens under steady-state conditions.
