While asymptotic homogenization leads to a much simpler problem for an equivalent homogeneous material with certain effective properties, the construction of a solution in the vicinity of the boundary of the original composite solid remains beyond capabilities of the classical homogenization. In order to determine stresses and strains near the boundary, a boundary layer problem should be considered in extension to the asymptotic homogenization. A boundary layer method is used in this paper to solve problems of fibre reinforced periodic composites.
