Research of Product Design in Physically Processed Type Based on Bamboo Composite Characteristics
Being a natural composite material, bamboo’s biological anatomy structure, chemical components and particularities in mechanical properties have some influences on the processing and manufacturing of bamboo materials. Based on micromechanical analysis and the combination of structural features of its hollow type curved surface and cleavability, this paper discusses about the feasibility about extension design of bamboo pole as a whole for modeling elements, any possible varieties by vertical and horizontal segmentation for diversified combinational designs like enclosure and assembly; as well as rationality about designing products models in association with line-type materials after cleavage and separation. In the meantime, it presents difficulties in processing and utilization owing to bamboo material’s characteristics in geometric configurations such as small diameter, hollowness, multisections, thin wall and taperingness, and also its only longitudinal fibers.
