The present paper is devoted to the development of a software equipment that allows to model composite materials by both discrete and continuous modelling approaches. The aim is to create a geometrical and topological representation of a discrete lattice particle model as well as its 1:1 twin counterpart as modelled by a continuum FEM model. Both representations capture the heterogeneous composite structure at the meso-level. The presented results illustrate the ongoing initial phase of the efforts of the team in advanced modelling of damage propagation within concrete.
