Study on Compressive Strength of Bamboo-Aluminum Composite


Article Preview

The advantages of aluminum alloy are found expression in lightweight and high strength, while bamboo features in density and thermal insulation. It’s necessary to explore composition effect of bamboo-aluminum composite. Specimens were prepared by filling aluminum alloy hollow profile with bamboo blocks, and then stress-time curves were collected in process of compression. Its ultimate strength reached 56 MPa, and residual strength is about 40% of its ultimate strength. The bamboo-aluminum composite has good mechanical properties and reliability for structural components and is worthy of wide applications.
