Abstract: The project is focused on finding out the feasibility and reliability of using bamboo as a reinforcing material in concrete structures by investigating the various physical and mechanical properties of bamboo and plain cement concrete beams reinforced with bamboo splints, by conducting a variety of laboratory test like-density test, initial moisture content test, water absorption test, tension test, compression test, durability test and IS 516:1959 Third Point Loading Flexure Test. The test were conducted on the specially crafted specimen of 3-4 years old air dried bamboo culm of “Bambusa-Bamboo” specie, purchased from the local market of Shimla, Himachal Pradesh .The observations and results were reported and analyzed in form of figures, tables and graphs as required.
