ZJUI research assistant, Mr Zhou Sicheng, presented “High-strain Rate Compressive Tests on Glubam: Preliminary Results” at the 2019 International Conference on Shock & Impact Loads on Structures in December. The results validate bamboo technology for impact-resistant structures. The paper received one of five Highly Commended Paper Awards out of more than one hundred papers. This paper was supervised by ZJUI Professors Cristoforo Demartino and Yan Xiao.
The International Conference on Shock & Impact Loads on Structures is the largest global conference on shock, impact, and extreme load design for structures. Glubam is a bamboo based laminated composite, invented by Prof. Xiao, that uses this fast-growing renewable bio resource for sustainable construction. The paper reported tests of impact stress-strain behavior of Glubam.
