Concrete has high compressive strength, stiffness, low thermal and electrical conductivity, but it lacks in tensile, flexural strength as well as structure formed is brittle and not tough.
Over the last decade, composites of polymers reinforced with natural fibres have received ever increasing attention, both from the academic world and from various industries.
The current mutation from metal to composites has given rise to important challenges for the aerospace and railway industries.
The future of textiles is very unpredictable due to day by day innovations in the various fields of textiles such as composite textiles and one such example is Three Dimensional Fabrics such as Multi-Layer, Orthogonal, Domed, Nodal, Spacer Fabrics, etc.
A solar panel is a device that uses energy from the sun and converts it into other forms of energy that humans consume for a variety of purposes.
A few months ago, senior executives of Italian luxury brand Salvatore Ferragamo met officials at the Delhi international airport and came away impressed by the swanky T3 terminal.
Awnings are widely used in commercial and residential buildings for decoration, protection or visibility.
Over the last few decades, technical textiles have emerged as a new class of civil engineering material bringing out revolutionary changes in numerous areas including dams, roads, embankments, erosion control, soil reinforcement etc.
3D fabrics are the focus of rapid development due to their versatile physical, structural attributes and application scopes. These fabrics can be produced in various architectures which offers a great deal of opportunity to modify the weight, aesthetics, properties and cost of the various products. 3D fabrics have wide methods in terms of manufacturing.

The concept of Geotextile originated from age-old use of natural fibres/ reeds/ leaves for strengthening pathways and controlling erosion in river banks/ sea-coasts. Application of Geotextiles manufactured from man-made fibres dates back to 1953 in the Netherlands after invention of polymers and various petrochemical derivatives.
