Over the past thirty years, composite materials have been used increasingly in industry, especially in the aeronautical and spatial industries. Therefore, there is a great interest in the prediction of their degradation. Concerning the modeling aspect, we use a damage mesomodel for laminates developed over the past twenty years at LMT-Cachan [1, 2, 3]. This model is highly nonlocal and, therefore, unsuitable for implementation into a commercial program. The objective of this work is to develop a program capable of simulating structures on an industrial level using the latest models developed. In the first section, we present a review of the damage mesomodel used for the simulations. The second section presents the implementation of all the ingredients needed for the simulation. Finally, the third section gives illustrations showing the level of performance which can be expected from such an approach.
