    In a composite material the constituents are arranged generally with the reinforcement phase embedded in the matrix phase. Due to a composite being essentially a mixture between the reinforcement phase and the matrix there is no intermolecular bonding between the two, however, as in the case of fibrous composites, the most mechanically efficient structure is a criss-crossed fibrous lattice suspended in a material matrix. In the case of particulate composites however, the reinforcement phase acts

    Introduction 1.1 History of Composite Materials There were three principal driving forces that led to the interest and investment in composite materials in the world such as the designer's demand for lower weight and higher rigidity for aerospace structures, electronics, and other applications. At the beginning the 20th century composite structure materials did give a potential to meet these structural requirements of these various applications. Although composite materials had been known in various

    1. Introduction The traditional material for aircrafts is aluminium while composite material content has always been less than 20% until the recent years. The latest aircraft models by Airbus and Boeing have composites content of 50% or more. (Mauricuien, n.d.) It has brought about many benefits to the industry but also causes difficulties in maintenance and safety issues. The drive of the material evolution is due the economic factors and higher expectation of society as technology advances. The

    in composite materials is due thanks to Kenneth Reifsnider [5] whom also deeply studied damage development [6]. The phenomenon cannot be described easily as in metals because of the complexity of the internal microstructure. The most important consequence of this complexity lies in the loss of a well-defined damage state, which cannot be considered like a single crack in homogeneous materials. Reifsnider in his introduction highlights the difficulty to define the damage condition in composite. Generally

    Composite materials is also called composition materials or shortened to composites. They may be selected to give unusual combinations of weight, stiffness, high temperature performance, strength, corrosion resistance, conductivity, or hardness. They are materials made from two or more constituent materials with significantly different physical or chemical properties. When combined, they produce a material with different characteristics from the individual components. The individual components will

    1.1 Background history Composite material is a multiphase materials which can be obtained through the artificial combination of two or more different materials to attain the properties that the individual components by themselves cannot attain. Composite materials can modify for many properties by appropriately choosing their components, proportions, distributions, morphologies and degrees of crystallinity, crystallographic textures, structure and the composition of the interface between components

    Abstract: In the present work, the brittle ceramic composite materials reinforced with a metal particle ratio less than 4o vol. % have been discussing. Ceramic composite materials are reinforced by adding metal particles to reduce the brittleness, this feature was and still is the critical point of ceramic materials. The review of this studying was focusing on ceramic materials that has a little ratio of reinforcing with metal particles and the effect of it on mechanical properties, dielectric properties

    INTRODUCTION Resin composite restorations are becoming have had a significant increase in popularity over the last few decades, and have become the patient’s preferred choice in filling material, due mainly due to their enhanced esthetics when compared to other restorations, as well as their ever-increasing durability. These factors have led to a large increase in demand from patients.1 As patient demand for this restorative material increases, so too do patient expectations for comfort and longevity
