The biggest similarity between bamboo and steel bar is that bamboo has good ductility and high tensile strength, so it can be used as the bamboo of bamboo house structure. However, due to the poor durability of bamboo reinforced concrete, it has been abandoned in the construction. However, due to its low cost, it can still be used in some small dikes. So why can bamboo be used as building materials? Follow Xiaobian for a brief understanding.
The density of bamboo varies with age and species. The drying shrinkage of bamboo is smaller than that of wood. The tangential drying shrinkage is the largest, the radial drying shrinkage is the second, and the longitudinal drying shrinkage is the smallest. The tensile strength along the grain is higher, which is about 2 times of that of wood on average. The tensile strength per unit weight is about 3-4 times that of steel, and the shear strength along grain is lower than that of wood. The strength of culm increased gradually from the base to the top, and changed with variety, age and site conditions.
There are two kinds of bamboo utilization: original bamboo utilization and bamboo processing utilization. Bamboo raw materials are mainly used for building materials, transportation of bamboo rafts, infusion pipes, small and medium-sized bamboo Stationery materials, musical instruments, agricultural tools, bamboo weaving, etc. there are many uses for processing and utilization, such as bamboo laminate can be used to make mechanical parts, and bamboo wood composite board can be used as engineering materials.
The above is a brief description of why bamboo can be used to build a bamboo house. I hope it will help you to understand. If necessary, you can contact us directly by phone.
