In fiber-reinforced composites, the strength and stiffness may be further controlled by specifying the fiber orientation. The highest levels of properties are achieved when all fibers are aligned along the primary loading direction within the composite. However, this simultaneously produces a material with the lowest specific properties for loads perpendicular to the fiber direction. These highly anisotropic properties must be considered in the use of the material. Of course, various laminate architectures can be produced to provide isotropy within a plane, and this is often done with OMCs.

Composites are commonly classified at two distinct levels. The first level of classification is usually made with respect to the matrix constituent. The major composite classes include organic-matrix composites (OMCs), metal-matrix composites (MMCs), and ceramic-matrix composites (CMCs). The term “organic-matrix composite” is generally assumed to include two classes of composites: polymer-matrix composites (PMCs) and carbon-matrix composites (commonly referred to as carbon-carbon composites). Carbon-matrix composites are typically formed from PMCs by including the extra steps of carbonizing and densifying the original polymer matrix.
