Dear Er.Noor ul Haq

I am not an expert in bamboo reinforced concrete.

I believe CBRI constructed an experimental bamboo reinforced slab in the early sixties.

While bamboo reinforced concrete is technically feasible, it should be noted that bamboo strength varies from species to species.

Even in the same species, the age at which bamboo was cut influences the strength.

Even within the same age, the season in which bamboo is cut also affects strength

In addition, the durability of a bamboo reinforced structural element depends upon the efficacy of waterproofing treatment given to the bamboo strip reinforcement

Hence, I believe, much more experimental investigations are required before bamboo reinforced concrete can be adopted in the field

Dear Er.Noor ul Haq

I observed that BIS has issued document CED 13 for comments.

This document deals with bamboo as a structural material and includes clauses on bamboo as reinforcement for concrete

Hence an IS code can be expected soon [?]
