An insight into bamboo as a material and bamboo poles as a ‘structural product’.

The webinar provides an understanding of the typical mechanical properties of bamboo and basic considerations when working with bamboo pole construction (e.g. grading, durability, preservation, procurement, fire-resistance). Codes and standards for structural design with bamboo are identified and discussed. A quick glance is given to the numerous technologies available to use bamboo. Finally, some common myths and misconceptions are discussed.

This will appeal to members with an active interest in structural use of bamboo and those involved in humanitarian or development projects in tropical countries.
