One of th IL publications (Lightweight Structures Institute in Stuttgart) is about Bamboo.  This should be an excellent source.

Hello all,

Has anyone worked with bamboo stems as columns, truss members, etc?  I'm curious about material properties, durability, jointing, etc.

I have a small "eco-project" in Ecuador and we're looking at constructing in bamboo.

Any thoughts or experiences?
