Abstract: Steel is commonly used as reinforcement, the cost of the steel is increases day by day, during the fabrication of steel emits the Co2 and it consumes high energy, for this reason bamboo is substituent material for the reinforcement. Scarcity of aggregate due banned quarries, the industries waste like broken roof tiles cause the environmental pollution, so it can be replaced as a coarse aggregate. In this paper aptness of bamboo used as reinforcement in RC beam with different percentage of roof tiles are replaced as a coarse aggregate. For the bamboo compressive strength, tensile strength and different treatment are performed. The beams are having size 2mx230mmx300mm, strength parameters are compared with conventional beams the roof tiles are replaced 0%, 20% ,40%, 60% and cost comparison are done.
Index Terms: Bamboo Reinforcement, Compressive Strength, Tensile Strength, Flexural Strength, Deflection, Young’s Modulus.
