Methodology for development of a macro-scale model (with strain as an input) for Regenerated Cellulose fiber (RCF) composites with highly non-linear (viscoelastic (VE) and viscoplastic (VP)) constituents is presented and demonstrated. The VE is described by Schapery's models and Zapas’ model is used for VP. For a purely VE constituent the model can be identified from stress relaxation in constant strain tests. In the presence of VP the constant strain test does not render VE stress relaxation functions, because part of the applied strain is VP and the VE strain is changing. As an alternative creep and strain recovery tests are suggested to find the plasticity law and also the nonlinear creep compliances to identify the VE model where stress is an input. The incremental form of this model is then inverted and used to simulate the VE relaxation tests and the simulated relaxation functions are used to identify the VE model with VE strain as an input. Models for constituents are used in micromechanics simulations of the composite behavior in arbitrary ramps including the composite VE relaxation test. Using the latter, a macro-model is developed and its validity and accuracy are demonstrated.
