Design Parameters of Bamboo Reinforcement One Way Slab
Mr. Mahesh Sadashiv Sarode,  Mr. Sumeet Gannure
Investigation was undertaken to find design parameters, the potential of bamboo as a reinforcement within concrete slab to compensate the low tensile property of the concrete. Although steel reinforcement is a very appropriate material for complementing concrete’s low tensile strength, considering the cost. In some parts of the world people build their houses by using solely concrete or mud-brick which is very vulnerable. To overcome these problems, bamboo may be the materials to substitute the reinforcing bar in concrete for less important structures. To evaluate these properties, tension test was conducted on bamboo specimen. From this test, the tensile strength, proof strength and modulus of elasticity were determined from stress-strain curve for bamboo reinforcement and satisfactory results are obtained in terms of tensile strength and stress-strain characteristics of bamboo for using as reinforcement in the concrete.
Keywords- Tensile Strength, stress-strain characteristics, standard deviation, Stress block, Modulus of elasticity of bamboo, Modulus of elasticity of concrete
