Composites
  • Composites are materials that are made from two or more constituents of differing properties
  • It is composed of a fibre and a Matrix
    • Fibres carry the load of the composite.
    • Matrices bind the fibres together, protect the fibres from corrosion and transfers the load between fibres.
  • Originally, Plywood was used in planes
  • Nowadays, carbon fibre and fibreglass are being used in planes due to their extremely great strength to weight ratio.
