  journal={Journal of Wood Science},
Bamboo is a composite material reinforced axially by fibers called vascular bundles. In this paper, the mechanical stripping method was used to isolate vascular bundles from moso bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis), China’s most important commercial bamboo species. The paper focuses on analyzing the suitability of this method for measuring the mechanical properties of single vascular bundles with respect to their location within a bamboo culm. Using a confocal laser scanning microscope (CLSM) and… CONTINUE READING
