In this chapter, a very brief introduction to composite materials, the evaluation of material properties and their homogenization techniques are given. Also, a brief introduction is given to smart composites and the basic constitutive models for composites, where a few standard smart materials can be embedded. Towards the end of the chapter a brief description of how to obtain constitutive models for inhomogeneous materials, such as functionally graded materials, is presented.
