Coated fabric membranes have been widely used in construction of light‐weight structures. The material behavior of textile membranes is highly nonlinear and anisotropic which may not be sufficiently represented by commonly used linear elastic orthotropic models. This contribution presents a formulation of a suitable nonlinear anisotropic polyconvex energy function for textile membranes in the geometrically nonlinear framework. Representation of total in‐plane material behavior is the main goal of this paper, however, the induced thickness change is also considered in the continuum model. The material parameters of the energy function are adjusted by introducing and minimizing an objective function enforcing the model response to be as similar as possible to the experimental data.
