Bamboo, mechanical properties, construction materials, natural materials


Materials which are high yielding and sustainable are now being researched to serve human demands because of rising global expansion and unfriendly utilization of raw materials. Bamboo is a rapidly growing, long-lasting material that may be used to satisfy most human requirements (such as housing, nourishment, and equipment). With scientific discoveries, innovation and knowledge, humankind is revisiting several habits and reverting to some more traditional approaches and techniques that are beneficial to human wellbeing, ecological and overall sustainable development in the 21st century. This study primarily emphasizes how to utilize bamboo for technical purposes, driven by these ecological issues. To begin, a material should be damagingly evaluated to obtain physical property before it can be used in engineering and construction projects. As a result, a thorough review of the existing literature on bamboo mechanic property values was studied. It was discovered that combining physical properties of every property and linking the variation in property values with bamboo characteristics shows that bamboo is the most suitable green material.
