    This paper presents an approach to the formulation of models characterizing nonlinear deformation and damage of composite materials. The research includes the consideration as the simplest model as more complex ones. In this research, a number of material relations to build up a theory for failure prediction in laminated composites are presented. The considered approach deals with the degradation and failure of the material using a phenomenological introduction of damage parameters explicitly influencing on the composite material stiffness. The part of this work is dedicated to the extension of formulated approach to capture and take into account the complex effects such as initial nonlinear shear deformation properties of laminated composites and the influence of high strain rate on the strength characteristics.
