The study was carried out to predict the strength of glass fiber reinforce polymer (GFRP) composite laminates based on woven fabric reinforcement containing a circular hole. Finite element based approaches is implemented within ABAQUS CAE based on cohesive zone approach implementing traction-separation parameter taken from independent experimental measurements of strength and toughness, applied withii two-dimensional Extended Finite Element Method (XFEM) framework. The modeling work covers a range of cross-ply GFRP woven fabric systems eight harness satin weaves (8HS) and plain weave (PW) with notch size of 2.5 mm, 5 mm and 10 mm at the center of the plate. The prediction in current study showed good agreement with experimental datasets and other analytical predictions reported in the literatures
