Abstract

Currently, all buildings and structural elements rely primarily on precast concrete. RCC's Steel is responsible for supporting and developing the structure. However, steel production can cause environmental pollution, so alternative methods must be in place. Therefore, we have chosen the cheapest and most readily available bamboo. Bamboo is a kind of giant grass and is an orthotropic material. Bamboo was initially used as a building material. Bamboo provides an excellent reinforcing material because of its very good tensile and compressive strength. The bending strength of bamboo-reinforced beams indicates greater strength. The purpose of this article is to present an environmentally sound construction method that meets the cost-effectiveness and local availability of building materials. The report was prepared using findings and combining results from various experiments conducted to determine the mechanical properties of bamboo and its use as a building material. This paper discusses the design principles involved in the design of bamboo-reinforced elements and structures, and shows that the use of bamboo instead of steel, as well as steel in general, provides weight savings and cost effectiveness. Advantages of strength compromised in a compact and safe level.
