MSc Research Grant: best poster announced
Congratulations to Suneina Jungra, who has won the prize for the best deliverables (poster) from the 2015/16 MSc Research Grant Scheme.
Her project, "Development of strength grading methods for round bamboo" studied whether a strength grading system could be devised for bamboo that would allow it to be used safely and economically in design.
The analysis showed that mass per unit length, average external diameter and flexural stiffness were well correlated with flexural capacity, and it is therefore proposed that these parameters could be used as Indicating Properties (IPs), either separately or in combination, for flexural capacity in a strength grading procedure for dry full-culm bamboo.
