Definition of Composite

"A homogeneous material created by the synthetic assembly of two or more materials (a selected filler or reinforcing elements and compatible matrix binder) to obtain specific characteristics and properties"

In simple word, a composite material is a combination of 2 or more material that gave a certain properties.

I wonder how many engineers realize the importance of material as alternative material to their product. Well, usually composite material are more costly, but then, it has an ountstanding properties depending on application.
