A Note on The Strength of Jamaica Grown Bamboo

E. C. McLaughlin


The results of approaches at developing and analysing empirical representations of axial tensile properties of the tissue of Bambusa vulgaris Schrad are described. The correlation between the tensile strength of the cell-wall tissue and the measured gross density is lower for small specimens, reinforced by strong narrow lumen fibers, than for larger specimens that contain additional broad lumen parenchyma cells.
