Marine Composites

Peter Davies – in Wiley Encyclopedia of Composites, July 2012


Composite materials are widely used in marine applications. This article first introduces the marine environment. Then the most common marine materials are described, both laminates and sandwich materials, and examples are given for different surface and underwater vessels. Composites used in other marine structures are then discussed, and the article ends with a short discussion of durability.
