In computer simulations where constitutive equations are considered polyconvex energies can preferably be used because the existence of minimizers is then automatically guaranteed. In this work we investigate the capability to simulate woven fiber composites using polyconvex energies. A virtual experiment of the microstructure of the considered composite is performed and the results are used for the specification of an effective macroscopic anisotropic polyconvex model
