Bamboo is one of the potential materials as a substitute for steel reinforcement.
Bamboo is very cheap, easily available, and available in ample quantity. Bamboo is cultivated in farm by farmers.
Bamboo is having very good mechanical properties which attract many researchers to use it as reinforcing material in concrete.
From bamboo small thin strips were prepared. These strips were tied together in two directions to form a bamboo-strip- mat. All these strips while making bamboo-strip-mat was tied together with small thin Mild Steel wire to ensure their position in mat formation.
It can benefit from increased strength, improved load-bearing capacity, cost-effectiveness, sustainability, corrosion resistance, lightweight construction, design versatility, and thermal insulation.
