ABSTRACT
Commercially important Bambusa bambos culms from three stages of its life cycle viz., before, during and after flowering were selected for determining strength properties using non-destructive and destructive techniques. The aim was to evaluate the dynamic modulus of elasticity (MOEd) of bamboo strips subjected to impulse excitation using elastosonic technique and correlate with the corresponding static flexural parameters (modulus of elasticity-MOEs and modulus of rupture-MOR) calculated from three-point static bending tests. Detailed statistical analysis was carried out to find relationships among flexural parameters with MOEd and specific gravity. Linear regression was observed between dynamic MOEd and static MOEs with coefficient of determination (R2) in the range of 0.64 to 0.88. The flexural strength (MOR) of bamboo from all three stages was also found to be linearly correlated with MOEd with high R2values. Similarly, strength parameters (Y) from present study were found to follow power regression equations with specific gravity (X) of the form: Y=mXn. Results confirmed that strength-specific gravity relations and resonance-based elastosonic technique can be successfully employed for rapid and reliable evaluation of stiffness and strength parameters of bamboo in strip forms which are mostly used in producing bamboo-based composite products.
