Flexural Behaviour Of Bamboo-fibre-reinforced Mortar Laminates

Summary

The flexural behaviour of bamboo-fibre-reinforced mortar laminates is reported.  The laminate considered is a sandwich plate combined with reformed bamboo plate and extruded fibre-reinforced mortar sheet. Due to its high strength to weight ratio, the reformed bamboo can significantly strengthen the mortar and reduce the total weight of the laminate.  Test results show that, for the laminates with reformed bamboo plate on the bottom as tensile layer and fibre-reinforced mortar sheet on the top as compressive layer, the flexural strength values can be improved to greater than 90 MPa.  10 refs.
