Abstract

Bamboo is a remarkable engineering material: it is a tapered tube with nodes, and the material is a composite with fibres in one direction. The bending behaviour has to be studied with a four point bending test. For pure bending a minimum length of the free span is essential. This minimum length is being discussed theoretically; the outcome is verified by tests.
