The emergence of high tensile, lightweight composites to compete with tried and tested stalwarts like concrete, timber and steel is a growth area for the engineering sector. In some cases engineering materials are combined for maximum flexibility. NZ Engineering News keeps readers up to date on the emerging use of different materials for engineering and the continued success and development of traditional materials. Steel and steel fabrication, plastics, metals and composites are examined and compared.
