.ppt   BAMBOO REINFORCED CONCRETE.ppt (Size: 4.47 MB / Downloads: 1,550)



Bamboo has been used as a construction material in certain area for

centuries. A study of bamboo is used as a reinforcement in precast concrete

elements was carried out in U.S Army Engineer Waterway experiment station in 1964.

Bamboo was given recent consideration for use as reinforcement in soil cement

pavement slabs in which the slabs behave inelastically even under light loads.


Bamboo is giant grass not a tree.
The density of fibres in cross-section of a bamboo shell varies with thickness as

well as height.
The strength of bamboo is greater than most of the timber products.
Bamboo is more prone to insect attack than other trees and grasses.
Bamboo can prevent pollution.


Use only bamboo showing a pronounced brown color. This will insure that the plant is

at least three years old.
Select the longest large diameter culms available.
Do not use whole culms of green, unseasoned bamboo.
Avoid bamboo cut in spring or early summer. These culms are generally weaker due to

increased fiber moisture content.


Concrete Mix Proportions
The same mix designs can be used as would normally be used with steel

reinforced concrete. Concrete slump should be as low as workability will allow.

Excess water causes swelling of the bamboo. High early-strength cement is preferred

to minimize cracks caused by swelling of bamboo when seasoned bamboo cannot be



The environmental and financial comparison demonstrates that

bamboo can compete with building material. Bamboo is a natural product and will

therefore always have some extent of irregularity. It is therefore suggested that the

bamboo culm should be used in functions were the measurement requirements are not

entirely precise or fixed, as in temporary buildings (e.g., pavilions and tents) or

small civil project and implimentations. Furthermore, bamboo can play a role as a non-supporting or

finishing material.
