Engineered bamboo and bamboo engineering
This Research Summary is based on an international symposium titled Bamboo in the Urban Environment, which took place at the University of Pittsburgh in May 2016. It focuses on topics related to:
- product development
- material testing and characterisation
- testing of connections, and
- end products.
This document is divided into two broad topics: engineered bamboo and bamboo engineering.
This document contains a fully comprehensive list of all the most up to date Wood Information Sheets (WIS) published by TRADA. Available to members for free or non-members for £12.00, these Wood Information Sheets provide technical guidance related to almost every timber topic under the sun.

Although there is an increasing interest and application in using adhesive-bonded connections for new buildings, the main demand for this technology in the UK has been for repairs to structural timbers. The original concept was aimed at repairing historic structures. However, the technology is increasingly being used for repairing modern...
Adhesives are widely used in non-structural applications such as furniture manufacture and joinery. They are also used in the manufacture of panel products such as plywood, particleboard, fibreboard and oriented strandboard (OSB), of which some grades are used structurally.
Glulam and structural timber composites such as cross laminated...
