CASE STUDY ON BAMBOO HOUSE
Keywords:– bamboo, CO2 emission, low cost seismic performance, codes of practice (IS 9096:2006, IS 6874:2008, IS 15912:2012).
Bamboo is the material with low cost and CO2 absorber. Bamboo is such a non -conventional material which can be use as replacement for concrete and steel in civil construction .The use of bamboo as construction material for house will give as affordable rates of houses. Use bamboo as alternative for concrete and steel leads to reduce down the CO2 emission by tremendous amount. Different tests are performed on bamboo to check whether it will give satisfactory performance or not. The result shows that bamboo gives satisfactory tensile strength compare with steel and better compression than concrete. This paper discuss about a case study of house constructed using bamboo. Code of practice used for bamboo are IS 9096:2006 for preservation of bamboo, IS 6874:2008 for method of tests for bamboo, IS 15912:2012 for structural design using bamboo.
