Different Types of Composites in Construction and their Uses

Composites are materials consisting of two or more chemically distinct constituents on a macro-scale, having a distinct interface separating them, and with properties which cannot be obtained by any constituent working individually. There are two categories of constituent materials: matrix and reinforcement. The reinforcement imparts its special mechanical and physical properties to enhance
