dc.description.abstractAn experimental investigation was conducted on cement mortar reinforced with woven bamboo mesh in a manner similar to ferrocement. The main parameter of the study was the volume fraction of bamboo and its surface treatment. The effect of casting pressure was also included. The results of the tests conducted in direct tension, flexure and impact are presented and discussed. Test results indicate that inclusion of bamboo mesh imparts considerable ductility and toughness to the mortar, and increases significantly its tensile, flexural and impact strengths. Use of some waterproof coating has been found to be effective to overcome high water absorption of bamboo and to improve its seemingly poor bond strength. Application of a small amount of casting pressure significantly improves the composite action. © 1983.
