One of the most important engineering tasks over the years has been the design
and manufacture of increasingly sophisticated structural materials as a result of the
requirements related to the technological progress. In the last decades, the growing
needs for improved properties of products have been partially solved through the
development of composite materials. A key to the success of many modern structural
components is the tailored behavior of the material to given applications.
