composite

[kəm′päz·ət]
(engineering acoustics)
A re-recording consisting of at least two elements.
(materials)
A material that results when two or more materials, each having its own, usually different characteristics, are combined, giving useful properties for specific applications. Also known as composite material.

composite

A combination of conventional materials such as gypsum with reinforcement fibers such as carbon or glass so as to provide the material with greater strength.

composite (material)

composite (material)
Comparative characteristics of metals and composites.
Composites are made up of two or more distinct materials that when combined are better (i.e., stronger, tougher, and/or more durable) than each would be separately. Unlike alloys, composite materials are anisotropic and use fiber or whiskers in a bonding matrix. Most common composites used in aircraft are carbon composites and superplastics, which are lighter, cheaper, stronger, and less prone to corrosion.

composite

1. Maths capable of being factorized or decomposed
2. of, relating to, or belonging to the plant family Asteraceae
3. denoting or relating to one of the five classical orders of architecture: characterized by a combination of the Ionic and Corinthian styles

The amount of nonevaporable water (NEW) in the control cement is higher than the compound cement; this is attributed to the degree of polymerization of the CSH gel and also to the pozzolanic CH-depletion of the composite cement. As the hydration phenomenon is delayed by the presence of secondary additions.
