Composite materials are often regarded as being modern materials, this is not the case. Perhaps the best example of a composite material is natural wood.
Natural composites exist in both animals and plants. Wood is a composite – it is made from long cellulose fibres (a polymer) held together by a much weaker.
Wood is composed of cellulose fibres bound in a lignin matrix which makes it a composite. The fibres are aligned in the direction of principal stress, along
