Fiber-Reinforced Composite - an overview | ScienceDirect

Fiber reinforced composites can be classified into four groups according to their matrices: metal matrix composites (MMCs), ceramic matrix composites (CMCs), carbon/carbon composites (C/C), and polymer matrix composites (PMCs) or polymeric composites (Fig. 3.10).Matrix, which has the primary role of holding the reinforcement together, is considered also as resin especially in the …
