Composite technology offers the opportunity to provide a large number of interfaces in a material which deflect crack fronts and dissipate the energy of fracture. Part II of this discussion examines the various types of composites, for example particle or whisker reinforcement, and analyzes their performance profiles with a special emphasis on the strengthening of glasses and glass-ceramics.
