%X This study deals with the identification of macroscopic elastic parameters of a layer-to-layer interlock woven composite from a full-field measurement. As this woven composite has a coarse microstructure, the characteristic length of the weaving is not small as compared to the specimen size. A procedure based on an inverse identification method and full-field digital image correlation kinematic measurement is proposed to exploit a three-point bending test on short coupons to characterize the out-of-plane shear modulus. Each step of the proposed procedure is presented, and their respective uncertainty is characterized with the help of numerical simulations. The shear modulus is identified with an accuracy of about 1.5 % and is 15 % lower than the estimate obtained through Iosipescu tests. The proposed procedure shows a correlation between the ideal mesh size and the weaving period. It also reveals that the actual boundary conditions deviate from the ideal ones and hence a special attention is paid to their optimization.
