We introduce a new mathematically rigorous high fidelity asymptotic theory for recovering the local field behavior inside complex composite architectures. The theory applies to zones containing strong spatial variance of local material properties. The method is used to recover the local field across ply interfaces for a pre‐stressed multi‐ply fiber reinforced composite. The results are shown to be in good agreement with direct numerical simulations for realistic fiber sizes and fiber‐matrix elastic properties.
