Abstract
A literature survey to explore worldwide applications, and research and development work in applications, of composite materials was undertaken. It stressed land and marine applications, especially in defence and military related areas. Both advantages and disadvantages of using composite materials instead of conventional ones are discussed. It was found that properties of composites can be manipulated successfully for many applications; high cost seems to be the detrimental factor to widespread usage.
