Abstract:

The present work investigates on use of bamboo and its application in the field of construction. Across the world, people have been using bamboo in construction for millennia. Its strong and lightweight characteristic gives an easy to build option in bamboo construction. Moreover it is resilient to wind, earthquake forces and readily repairable in the event of damage. This paper lays down emphasis on key parameters of viable use of bamboo in construction such as housing, protection of bamboo components, it’s associated products (bamboo based panels and bamboo reinforced concrete) and various jointing techniques. As a renewable material, with incredibly fast growth rate and properties similar to wood, bamboo has the potential to play an important role in meeting construction needs for a rapidly urbanizing world in an environmentally sustainable way. Therefore constructive improvisation needs to be done in order to exploit bamboo as a construction material and further burgeoning effort should be made in areas of structural design, preservation, jointing and codification.
