RE: Bamboo design references

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
This would be an excellent opportunity to go to Hong Kong and study under their master scaffold builders.  All construction scaffolding there is bamboo and they do fantastic things with it.  I believe it is all tied together with straps.  The scaffolding is erected under the direction of true masters of their trade.

Subject: Bamboo design references


  I see a masonry news magazine siting a USA structural bamboo forest is 
to be farmed.
I would like to look at bamboo post and beam design methods, a green idea.
Does anyone have resources?
Protection from the elements?
Connection details?
Any references to tests and reliability?
