Experimental Study on the Compressive Mechanical Performance of Bamboo Strip Plywood under Static Loads
The compressive mechanical performance of bamboo strip plywood was studied in the paper. Based on analysis of the related experiments datum , the principal compressive mechanical performance under static load were expounded perfectly, and a number of mechanical parameters such as compressive strength, compressive elastic modulus and compressive constitutive relations were obtained. It was shown that the mechanical performance of bamboo strip plywood was better than that of wood material such as Northeast larch, the compressive elastic modulus was lower than that of concrete, so that there existed a more great deformation when the bamboo beam structure was loaded, and the constitutive relations of bamboo materials showed that there was excellent ductility with an obvious characteristic of plastic deformation . This research result showed that there was a great significance on studying and application of bamboo bridges in the future.
