Introduction. This book focuses on the fibers and textiles used in composite materials. It presents both existing technologies currently used in commercial applications and the latest advanced research and developments. It also discusses the different fiber forms and architectures, such as short fibers, unidirectional tows, directionally oriented structures or advanced 2D- and 3D-textile structures that are used in composite materials.

Moreover, due to their porous structure, fibrous materials offer good sound absorption and are widely used in acoustic insulation. Fibrous materials are usually flexible, but made rigid, by means of additives, into desired shapes. Until the mid-twentieth century, most of the usage of fibrous materials reserved for clothing and other household uses. 1.
