This study presents representative volume element (RVE) homogenization by using bondbased peridynamics. First, a method to perform RVE homogenisation analysis with bond-based peridynamic theory is demonstrated. Homogenized material properties of a unit-sized fibre reinforced composite cell with varying fibre volume fraction are predicted using the present method. Peridynamic results are compared against a finite element based RVE approach and a good agreement is observed between the two approaches.
