Stamping is one of the most effective ways to form textile composites in industry for providing high‐strength, low‐weight and cost‐effective products. This paper presents a fully continuum mechanics‐based approach for stamping simulation of textile fiber reinforced composites by using finite element (FE) method. A previously developed non‐orthogonal constitutive model is used to represent the anisotropic mechanical behavior of textile composites under large deformation during stamping. Simulation are performed on a balanced plain weave composite with 0°/90° and ±45° as initial yarn orientation over a benchmark double dome device. Simulation results show good agreement with experimental output in terms of a number of parameters selected for comparison.
