The present contribution gives an overview of the recent efforts developed at Bristol Composite Institute (ACCIS) towards building a finite element modelling framework for AFP processes. Inputs include both fundamental understanding of the material behaviour and efficient numerical tools for implementation at large component scale modelling. The requirements for a numerical model for AFP are explored, limitations of the current state-of-art modelling techniques are assessed and a roadmap towards fully predictive and efficient simulation tools is proposed.
