The manufacture technologies of two kinds of bamboo laminated panel and their physicalmechanical properties have been studied in this paper. The results have shown that laminated bamboo panels can be produced by the splitting and regluing, and the mechanical properties reached or even exceeded some pine used in architecture.
This paper discusses the feasibility of technologies for using bamboo in middling and top-grade building construction, architecture decorating, and other major applications. The scope covers the current application of bamboo materials in the construction field; the bamboo bearing material technological process such as the laminated bamboo board, bamboo mat plywood processes; bamboo ceiling and wall […]
Bamboo is regarded as a major resource that meets the need of common people and also as a poverty alleviator due to its multi purpose uses. As a result of this, bamboo resources are of great importance in the rural socio-economy of several tropical countries. As pulp and paper being the major commercial bamboo consuming […]
The physical mechanical performance of four kinds of corrugated roofing boards (bamboo, plastic, asbestos and steel) have been determined in the paper. The performance of the bamboo mat corrugated board has been compared with other three kinds of corrugated boards. The results have shown that the bamboo mat board has bery good properties in the […]
Recently, glue-laminated bamboo normally used for flooring and panelling has been made into mouldings. The physical properties of such a bamboo moulding were studied, and the properties of it have been compared with other four kinds of mouldings, one MDF moulding and three solid wood mouldings. The bamboo moulding has excellent surface hardness and antinicking […]
This study was designed to produce regional distribution maps of all species of woody bamboos occurring in Africa; North, Central and South America. Qualitative data on distribution of woody bamboos were combined with data on existing forest cover. In the course of the study, 378 individual bamboo species and subspecies, and 32 genera of Bambuseae […]
This study was designed to produce a regional distribution map of all species of woody bamboos occurring in the Asia-Pacific region (South, Southeast and East Asia, Papua New Guinea and Australia). Qualitative data on distribution of woody bamboos were combined with data on existing forest cover. In the course of the study, 998 individual bamboo […]
This study was designed to produce global overview and regional distribution maps of all rattan species occurring in the Asia-Pacific region (South, Southeast and East Asia, Papua New Guinea and Australia) and Africa. Qualitative data on distribution of rattans were combined with data on existing forest cover. In the course of the study, 610 individual […]
This report is an extensive examination of the production-to-consumption system of rattan in southern Nigeria.
INBAR was involved in an active research programme to develop new food products from bamboo shoots. The objective of the research programme is to stimulate new uses of bamboo shoots in existing markets and to assist developing food security in food-poor areas.
