Bamboo is a fiber-reinforced bio-composite since its culm wall is mainly composed of parenchymatous ground tissue in which vascular bundles are embedded. In order to analyze the mechanical properties of bamboo as a function of its components, tensile tests were performed on bamboo blocks and the corresponding volume fractions of fiber and parenchymatous ground tissue were measured. More significant linear relationships were found between tensile properties and volume fractions of the bamboo… CONTINUE READING
