  abstract = {The permeability of textile reinforcements is a crucial
		  input for the simulation of the impregnation stage of a
		  composite material fabrication process. In this paper, we
		  present a fast and accurate simulation method for the
		  permeability of a textile reinforcement, based on a finite
		  difference discretisation of the Stokes equations. Results
		  for single layer, multi-layer and sheared models are
		  discussed. The influence of intra-yarn flow and periodic or
		  wall boundary conditions are considered. We compare the
		  numerically computed permeability values with experimental
