SHEARING BEHAVIOR OF STRUCTURAL INSULATED PANEL WALL SHELLED WITH BAMBOO SCRIMBER
In this study, shearing behavior of a structural insulated panel (SIP) wall, which consisted of a Styrofoam core board, shell panel of bamboo scrimber, and frame of Spruce–Pine–Fir dimension lumber, was tested under monotonic and cyclic loads. Results showed that the SIP wall failed at similar positions under two loading modes, although more serious destruction occurred under cyclic than monotonic load. There was a linear relationship between load and displacement at the initial loading stage, which indicated that the wall worked under the elastic state. At a later loading stage, bearing capacity and rigidity decreased as a result of wall slip. Shearing strength under monotonic and cyclic loads was 20.0 and 15.8 kNm-1, respectively, which met the requirement of the standard code for design of timber structures. Energy consumption of the SIP wall covered with bamboo scrimber was 11,556.6 Jm-1.
