  • Fibre-reinforced composites have become increasingly attractive for many engineering applicationsin the last decades. A very interesting aspect of these materials is that their mechanical properties canbe tailored for optimum strength and stiffness by controlling the orientation of the fibers embeddedin the matrix material. Composites are characterized by high strength properties, strong corrosionresistance, improved damage tolerance and can lead to considerable weight and cost reduction… CONTINUE READING
