Mechanical Engineering


Composite material is a combination of two materials in which one material in the form of fiber is embedded in the other material called matrix. Plywood is an example of composite material.

Properties: (i) They have high tensile strength.

(ii) They have high toughness

(iii) They have high strength to weight ratio.

Types: (i) Particle reinforced composites.

(ii) Fiber reinforced composites.

(iii) Structural composites.
