For facility reasons and to be in accordance with inequality one may consider a polymeric fibrous composite the constituents of which are epoxy resin and e-glass fibers, i.e., [v.sub.f] = 0.2; [v.sub.m] = 0.35.

Phenomenological models were created in the past for a primary mathematical derivation of the mechanical properties of transversally isotropic fibrous composite structures, but they could be used sufficiently well also in this day.
Researchers at the University of Southampton have found that the feather shaft, or rachis, is made of a multi-layered fibrous composite, much like carbon fibre, which allows the feather to bend and twist to deal with flight stresses.
"Wherever you want to have a fibrous composite at high temperatures, you go with boron nitrides," says Roy Whitney, president and chief executive officer of BNNT, LLC, based in Newport News, Va.
Fibrous composite materials with a metal matrix are effectively used in modern industry because of their high durability, light weight and other valuable properties Among such materials, aluminium composites, reinforced by the fibres of boron, tungsten and carbide of silicon, are widely known [2,3].
This paper deals with the evaluation of the residual modal energy in glass/epoxy unidirectional fibrous composite beam at a desired state.
There are many studies regarding the influence of certain fillers on the properties of a particulate composite, regarding the influence of the reinforcement on the properties of a fibrous composite etc but generally these studies refer to a class of properties like thermal, or electrical, or electromagnetic.
Neither the volume average quantities based on elementary mechanics of materials nor any existing discontinuous LCP fibrous composite models could account for positive deviation from a linear additive behavior as observed in Fig.
Depending upon the reinforcement these are classified as particulate composites, fibrous composites, laminate composites.
