We consider a bi-dimensional sheet consisting of two orthogonal families of inextensible fibres. Using the representation due to Rivlin and Pipkin for admissible placements, i.e. placements preserving the lengths of the inextensible fibres, we numerically simulate a standard bias extension test on the sheet, solving a non-linear constrained optimization problem. Several first and second gradient deformation energy models are considered, depending on the shear angle between the fibres and on its gradient, and the results obtained are compared. The proposed numerical simulations will be helpful in designing a systematic experimental campaign aimed at characterizing the internal energy for physical realizations of the ideal pantographic structure presented in this paper.
