The composite materials are being used extensively in marine industries for the construction of marine structures. Ships and vessels have to sustain extreme environment conditions and are prone to erosion during their useful life period. For marine applications, understanding the performance, properties, process ability and sustainability in harsh climatic conditions have received much attention in the recent past. It is possible to enhance the durability and integrity of these composite materials in various service conditions by altering the response of its constituents; i.e. fiber, type of matrix, interface between matrix and fiber.
