Bamboo, Reinforcement, failure mode, Load – deflection, Ultimate Load


This paper presents experimental study of a pair of Bamboo reinforced concrete (BRC) beams. The grades of concrete and yield stress of Bamboo used were M 20 and 98.5 MPa respectively. The beams were tested under four point loading. Flexural Behaviour, Failure mode, Load-deflection, Ultimate Load were studied and reported. The experimental results are verified for salient points. Locally available materials were used and real time cross section and spans were adopted. Hence, the results obtained is more realistic and thus, it can support the further researches and also motivate wider application of bamboo as reinforcement.
