Structural Analysis of Bamboo Wall Framed Structure – An Approach

Main Article Content

Amitava Sil, et. al.


Structural applications of indigenous materials such as bamboo are considered as an integral part of the sustainable development. In the study, the author has tried to analyze bamboo wall framed structure using half strip bamboo anchored to a sheathing material. It has been modeled in STAAD Pro software and different load as- Dead Load, Live Load, Seismic Load, Wind load were applied on the frame. The material properties of bamboo were defined using the value of modulus of elasticity, Poisson’s Ratio, density, and shear modulus obtained from the tests conducted here in laboratory.
