Ab initio calculations of theoretical tensile and compressive strengths in the 〈100〉 direction of a composite having continuous nanofibre reinforcements are performed using pseudopotential approach within density functional theory. Results for iridium or platinum nanofibres in copper or gold matrices, presented as case studies, reveal that the theoretical tensile and compressive strengths almost linearly increase with increasing atomic concentration of the reinforcement exhibiting only slight positive strength deviations from the linearity for Pt-Au and slight negative deviations of the tensile strength for Ir-Cu.
