This special section contains peer-reviewed papers presented at a symposium on Composite Materials, held in Detroit, MI, USA, between September 16–20, 2007, as a part of the Materials Science & Technology (MST’07) conference. The conference was held under the sponsorship of The Minerals, Materials and Metals Society (TMS), ASM International, American Ceramic Society, and the Association for Iron and Steel Technology. The symposium brought together researchers working on a variety of composite systems, including polymer, metal, and ceramic matrix composites. Work on fibers and nanotube reinforcement was also presented. Traditionally, these topics are presented and reviewed at separate conferences. In this symposium we tried to bring together researchers working on a variety of composite systems to allow fruitful discussion in all areas of composites. This cross-fertilization was appreciated by all the participants and promoted an appreciation of the commonality of phenomena between...
