This document specifies test methods suitable for determining the following mechanical properties of engineered bamboo products:

a) modulus of elasticity in bending;

b) shear modulus;

c) bending strength;

d) modulus of elasticity in tension parallel to the fibre;

e) tension strength parallel to the fibre;

f) modulus of elasticity in compression parallel to the fibre;

g) compression strength parallel to the fibre;

h) modulus of elasticity in tension perpendicular to the fibre;

i) tension strength perpendicular to the fibre;

j) modulus of elasticity in compression perpendicular to the fibre;

k) compression strength perpendicular to the fibre and shear strength;

i) shear strength parallel to the fibre.

In addition, the determination of dimensions, moisture content and density are specified.

This document is applicable to prismatic shapes of glued laminated bamboo and bamboo scrimber intended to resist flexure, shear, axial loads, or combinations thereof.
