For the problem of bamboo structure safety caused by bamboo culms splitting, the bamboo culms splitting capacity test method is studied, bamboo culms splitting capacity finite element model based on brittle fracture mechanics is proposed in the work. The results calculated by I-EM are consistent with the experimental results, and the error is in 20% or less. The bamboo culms splitting capacity finite element model established above can provide supports for bamboo culms wide engineering applications. The developed model has theory and engineering significance for digital bamboo building optimal design.
