Composites - Designing Buildings Wiki28 Nov 2017 ... One of the main advantage of using composites is that the reinforcement and matrix combination can be altered according to the required properties. There are many different types of composites which can be used for a wide range of construction and engineering purposes. Concrete is the most common composite material, consisting of aggregate held with cement as the matrix. Other common types of composites include: Fibre-reinforced polymer (FRP).
