The fiber CompositesWorld

The structural properties of composite materials are derived primarily from the fiber reinforcement. In a composite, the fiber contributes high tensile strength, enhancing properites in the final part, such as stregnth and stiffness while minimizing weight.

Composites: Materials and processes CompositesWorld

High strength and low weight remain the winning combination that propels composite materials into new arenas, but other properties —vibrational damping and low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE), fatigue resistance are jsut as appealing. Moreover, the potential for significant parts consolidation provides design/fabrication flexibility that can  translate into a finished product that requires less raw material, fewer joints and fasteners and shorter assembly time.
