Abstract

Nonmetallic materials are used for electrical and thermal insulation and structural elements. Ceramics are important for high-frequency insulation and support elements under compression. Polymers are applied for impregnation and as a matrix for fiber composites under compression. Fiber composites are used for lightweight construction and for fatigue-resistant and tensile structural elements.
