Paper Title
A Study on Characteristic Strength of Bamboo Fiber Reinforced Concrete
  Bindu M,  Dr. Narendra B.K,  Manjunatha J.K

The mixing of small closely spaced and evenly distributed fibers to concrete avoids crack and significantly develop the Cracking arrestors, Impact strength, Tensile strength, Fatigue resistance, and Wear and Tear. This has been proved. The concrete Ductility is augmented by mixing of fibers. Such a complex material is Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC). Bamboo is a multipurpose reserve categorized by large ratio of strength to weight and its ease of work with simple tools. It is one of the rapidly growing natural reserves. Present day construction works uses concrete as a basic material. To achieve Tensile strength Steel is used as reinforcement because concrete is fragile in tensile strength. Most commonly encountered problems in Steel are corrosion, expensive etc.; therefore studies are going on to use Bamboo as reinforcement in concrete and as structural material because of its beneficial characteristics. Some of the fibers that can use in production of FRC are Aluminum, Coir, Jute, Carbon, Steel etc. The Bamboo fibers are also used in concrete as a natural fiber to produce Bamboo Fibers Reinforced Concrete (BFRC) to impart some desirable properties to concrete. In this project we are going to study the characteristics strength properties of BFRC. After knowing, complete behavior of BFRC, it can be suggested for precast units and small slab units and as a structural material. Thus the research has commercial application.
