A multiscale numerical model is used to investigate the structure–property relationship for oriented semicrystalline polymers. The basic element in this model is a layered two-phase composite inclusion, comprising both a crystalline and an amorphous domain. An aggregate of preferentially oriented composite inclusions is used in a macroscopic finite element model.
