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
4. any plant of the family Asteraceae (formerly Compositae), typically having flower heads composed of ray flowers (e.g. dandelion), disc flowers (e.g. thistle), or both (e.g. daisy)

However, uncertainties in the energy-intensive manufacturing process of fiber-reinforced plastic, limited commercial recycling operations and limited NDT of fiber-hybrid composites in offshore wind turbines may hamper the growth of the hybrid composites industry over the forecast period.
The addition of two or more fibers under same matrix material will affect the mechanical properties of hybrid composites. Epoxy resin along with hardener was used as binding material and hand layup technique attempted for the fabrication process.
Unlike those flexible plastic fibers, however, the steel-and-carbon fiber hybrid composite doesn't sacrifice as much stiffness and, theoretically, won't require as much additional reinforcement to retain the desired rigidity characteristics.
f-Na-MMT/PAfs/PP Hybrid Composites. PAfs/f-Na-MMT/PP hybrid composites were prepared by adding 5 wt% of treated polyamide fibers (t-PAfs) to different recycled nanocomposites 3, 5, and 7 wt% f-Na-MMT/PP which were prepared and grinded as it was explained above in the section of f-Na-MMT/PP nanocomposites preparation.
The results have shown that the tensile strength, tensile modulus, flexural strength, flexural modulus and impact strength of hybrid composites are in close agreement with composites.

Hybrid composites studied previously [32] showed poor strain sensing behaviour in flexural loading as compared to tensile or compression mode due to the nullifying effect of resistance change in the tension and compression side.
The test result of the various hybrid composites is given in Figure 15 and possibly gives an estimation of the flexural capacity of the material even after failure.
An increased absorption is obtained for hybrid composites D' to G' when the portion of PbS NPs synthesized inside the polymer matrix increases.
The topics include types of fiber and fiber arrangement, failure modes in structural applications and their prevention, hybrid composites for structural applications, thermoplastic composite structural insulated panels for modular panelized construction, strengthening steel structures, and environmental engineering applications.
Ming's research has focused on multifunctional, nanostructured polymer materials and coatings, including super-repellent/antimicrobial coatings, smart coatings for corrosion detection and prevention, and polymer hybrid composites.
Visiongain provides forecasts for the period 2012-2022 in terms of value (US$) for the global composites market, as well as for 4 submarkets (glass fibre composites, carbon fibre composites, aramid fibre composites, other fibre / hybrid composites) of the composites market.
