Abstract
Abstract Bamboo has been widely used as a rapidly renewable structural material to build permanent and temporary structures in past decades. However, the compressive bearing capacity of bamboo is relatively low, which limits its applications only in the structures under light loads. This paper proposed an innovative scheme to improve the load bearing capacity of bamboo by filling concrete or cement mortar in bamboo cavity. An experimental study on the axial load behavior of material-filled structural bamboo was carried out, aiming at investigating the effects of the infilled materials, the horizontal stiffener and the bamboo node. A total of 19 specimens were tested under axial compression. It was found that the axial load bearing capacities and the initial stiffness of both concrete-filled bamboo columns and cement mortar filled bamboo columns are much higher than the conventional bamboo, which verified the feasibility of the proposed stiffening scheme. Concrete-filled bamboo columns show better ductility than cement mortar filled bamboo columns. Furthermore, the ductility of concrete-filled bamboo columns can be improved by increasing the steel reinforcement ratio. In addition, the beneficial effect of the node on the ultimate bearing capacity can be found in material-filled bamboo specimens, indicating that the integrity of the bamboo node is essential for the bearing capacities of material-filled bamboo columns. Similarly, the horizontal stiffener passing through bamboo internode has a beneficial effect on both the ultimate bearing capacities and the corresponding axial strains of material-filled bamboo columns and conventional bamboo. However, the stiffener passing through the node may result in a decease in the bearing capacity. Finally, a simple and efficient method was proposed for predicting the ultimate bearing capacity of material-filled bamboo columns. The confining effects of bamboo on the infilled materials are considered carefully in this method. The calculated results by the proposed method were compared with experimental results, exhibiting a good agreement.

Abstract Bamboo is a sustainable material with high potential for structural applications. The aim of this study was to use edge bearing tests, digital image correlation analysis, and finite element simulations to research about the distribution of the circumferential elastic modulus through the wall and the associated failure strain and stress. Studied bamboo species were Phyllostachys edulis (Moso), Bambusa stenostachya (Tre Gai) and Guadua angustifolia (Guadua). Using the edge bearing tests, ...

Abstract The reticulated dome structure is a system composed of linear elements arranged in such a way that the forces are transferred in a three-dimensional manner. These dome structures require less amount of materials to be built when compared to continuous surface domes, thereby, reducing the embodied energy of the structure, i.e., the energy used in the manufacture and transportation of materials. However, selecting materials with high embodied energy can significantly impact the energy use...

Abstract Bamboo is an underutilized resource widely available in countries with rapidly developing economies. Structural bamboo products, analogous to wood products, allow flexibility in the shape and dimensions of bamboo structural members. Here, the ultrastructure, microstructure, cell wall properties and flexural properties of three species of bamboo (Moso, Guadua and Tre Gai) are compared. At a given density, the axial modulus of elasticity of Guadua is higher than that of Moso or Tre Gai, w...

Abstract This paper describes the results of an experimental programme to determine the fatigue behaviour of bamboo. Bamboo is subjected to cyclic loading, both in the plant itself and subsequently when the material is used in load-bearing applications in the construction industry. However, there is currently no data in the literature describing fatigue in this material. We found that sections of bamboo culm loaded parallel to the culm axis did not undergo fatigue failure: samples either failed ...

Engineered bamboo is increasingly explored as a material with significant potential for structural applications. The material is comprised of raw bamboo processed into a laminated composite. Commercial methods vary due to the current primary use as an architectural surface material, with processing used to achieve different colours in the material. The present work investigates the effect of two types of processing methods, bleaching and caramelisation, to determine the effect on the mechanical ...

Abstract Bamboo is a rapidly renewable material that has many applications in construction. Engineered bamboo products result from processing the raw bamboo culm into a laminated composite, similar to glue-laminated timber products. These products allow the material to be used in standardised sections and have less inherent variability than the natural material. The present work investigates the mechanical properties of two types of commercially available products 鈥 bamboo scrimber and laminated...

Abstract Bamboo is widely used as scaffolding for which collapses, often associated with rain events, are not uncommon. The presented study quantifies the degradation of mechanical properties of bamboo samples following immersion in water for 1 and 7聽days to simulate the effects of significant rain events. Compression, longitudinal shear and splitting tests were conducted to obtain the respective strengths and moduli. The mechanical properties were observed to degrade significantly with increase...

Concrete is often reinforced with steel bars to negate its weak tension carrying capacity. However, due to higher cost and non-renewability of steel, nowadays attempts are made to provide a low-cost sustainable alternative by using locally available material. The feasibility for usage of bamboo as reinforcement in concrete is evaluated through a series of experimental investigations in the present study. First of all, tensile test of locally procured bamboo strips are conducted for evaluation of...

Abstract The phenomenon of creep, particularly in anisotropic and fibre-reinforced materials, is critical to structural design. The objective of this study is to study the creep behaviour of bamboo in particular considering the effect of specimen orientation. The experiment is motivated by the restriction of sustained load on various materials, particularly fibre reinforced materials, due to creep. In this study, half of the radially-cut Bambusa stenostachya (Tre Gai) specimens subjected to a su...

Bamboo has been widely used as a load-bearing material in construction; however, there are limited studies on the stability of slender original bamboo columns. Based on the experimental investigation of thirty-nine original bamboo columns, parametric analyses were conducted to investigate the influence of the diameter鈥搕hickness ratio, cross-sectional area and slenderness ratio on the axial compression behavior of original bamboo columns. The test results indicate that the failure modes of the co...

Bamboo is a biomass material, which is a great substitute for wood with the potential to reduce the demand for woody materials. However, there is still a huge challenge to obtain crack-free bamboo boards with an ideal width due to the hollow cylinder and large curvature of bamboo culms. Herein, a method is demonstrated that can flatten bamboo culms by high-pressure saturated steam (180聽掳C/6聽min) under a compression force of 8鈥10聽MPa by two rollers. The macro-聽and micro-mechanical properties of t...

Abstract The negative impacts of cement-based material (CBM) production are way bigger than ever expected. To illustrate the scale of this phenomenon, all the forests in the world, regardless of the fact that they are disappearing at an alarming rate, are not enough to offset even half the environmental impact (EI) of global aggregates and cement production. Thus, it is necessary to promote scientific research and guide more researchers and professionals in the construction industry to investiga...

Abstract Circular concrete-filled steel tubular columns (CFST) with an inner bamboo culm, by replacing the internal steel tube of concrete-filled double skin steel tubular (CFDST) columns with a structural bamboo culm, promote the use of natural materials with lower cost and lighter weight. This type of composite column is expected to integrate the advantages of all the three kinds of materials. Twenty-two circular stub columns including 12 CFST with an inner bamboo culm, 3 CFST columns, 4 CFDST...
