The purpose of this manual is to introduce graduate students into the possibilities of computational micromechanics of materials. Micromechanics of materials considers strength, mechanical and other physical properties of materials, taking into account their microstructures (as inclusions, voids, shear bands, microcracks, etc., generally: heterogeneity of materials) at the scale level of nano- and micrometers. An important group of materials, especially for the wind industry, is the fiber reinforced polymers. These materials have high strength and low weight, and are widely used in many energy technologies. In this work, we seek to develop a computational model of the fiber reinforced polymers, and carry out virtual (computational) testing of damage evolution in these materials.
