Index of Materials - Composite - Tubes

Composite

A Composite comprises at least two components, one being fibrous or particulate embedded in a matrix.

These are a range of materials which provide improved mechanical properties when compared to their base counterparts e.g. strength, stiffness, thermal conductivity, abrasion resistance, creep resistance or dimensional stability.

There are two classes, namely a resin-matrix Composite and a Metal Matrix Composite; in both cases, the improved performance of the materials is achieved by the addition of carbon, metallic or intermetallic compounds.

Tube

A hollow length of material normally circular in section. Most tubes are straight except those made of flexible polymer.
