Abstract : High strength composite materials have generated a tremendous interest in materials science and its application. A composite material has been arbitrarily defined by Broutman (1967) as a material that must: (1) be man-made, unlike wood, (2) be a combination of at least two chemically distinct materials with a defined interface between them, (3) be combined three-dimensionally, which precludes laminate structures, (4) have properties not exhibited by its constituents (e.g. exhibits synergism). jg p.21
