A computationally efficient concurrent multi-scale methodology for modeling com-posites under high rates of loading is proposed. The physically based model relies on micro-mechanical properties of the constituents only. Initially, the material response is calculated based on homogenized linear-elastic, orthotropic material properties at the laminate scale which are calculated using the rule of mixtures. A modified Hashin-Rotem criterion is then used to identify the switch to a more accurate micromechanical analysis based on the gener-alized method of cells (GMC). The methodology is verified using one-element tests on UD-composites and validated against high-velocity impact experiments. Both, the correlation with the experiments and the computational efficiency are good.
