A Review on Recent Applications and Future Prospectus of Hybrid Composites in Various Engineering Applications
weight proportion, minimal cost and simplicity of creation are essential. Hybrid composites
deliver combination of properties such as compressive strength, impact strength and tensile
modulus which cannot be appreciated in composite materials. In modern times, hybrid
composites have been recognized as highly efficient, high performance structural materials
and their use is increasing speedily. Hybrid composites are generally used when
combinations of properties of several types of fibers have to be attained, or when longitudinal
as well as lateral mechanical performances are necessary. The analysis of the innovative
applications of hybrid composites has been of deep interest to the scientists for several years
as obvious from reports. This article presents a review of the present-day status of hybrid
composite materials technology, in terms of materials available and properties, and a
framework of some of the developments, recognizable and hypothetical, with highlighting on
numerous applications including smart hybrid composites.
