The study focused on the use of Bamboo as reinforcement for reinforced concrete slab and beam samples. A comparison was also made on the use of bamboo as reinforcement against steel reinforcement in concrete. Both beams and slabs designed for bamboo tensile reinforcement equivalent to steel reinforcements resulted in significantly lower failure loads at 63% and 34% respectively of the steel beam and slab equivalents.
