Composite Materials Fiber-reinforced composite materials are formed from lamina of fibers of graphite, glass, or polymers embedded in a resin matrix. z z z y y y x x x E E E ε σ = = = • directionally dependent moduli of elasticity x z xz x y xy ν = = • directionally dependent values of Poisson’s ratio • Materials with directionally dependent mechanical properties are anisotropic .
