Ceramics are inorganic and non-metallic materials that are necessary in our everyday lives. Ceramic and materials engineers design the procedures by which these items are manufactured, develop new types of ceramic products, and discover new applications for ceramics in everyday life. Ceramics can be found all over the place. Tile, bricks, plates, glass, and toilets all fall within this category of materials. A ceramic is a non-metallic inorganic material made composed of metal or non-metal compounds that have been formed and then hardened at high temperatures. They are hard, corrosion-resistant, and brittle in general.
Engineering Materials are materials that are used as raw materials for any type of construction or manufacture in an ordered manner in an engineering application. Controlled engineering procedures, for example, are used to create the computer and pen we use. Everything we use in our day-to-day lives may be customised to be used in unique situations. If we know the properties of each material ahead of time, we can do this quickly. As a result, materials have been thoroughly evaluated for their qualities and categorised into broad categories.
A composite material is a macroscopic mixture of two or more different materials with a finite interface between them. Composite materials first appeared in the mid-twentieth century as a promising class of engineering materials that offered new opportunities for modern technology. The flexibility to modify properties and the vast range of property values achieved with composites is a benefit. Traditional engineering materials have lower strength and modulus-to-weight ratios than composite materials. These features can reduce a system's weight by as much as 20% to 30%.
