Impact Response of Bamboo Guadua Angustifolia Kunth
The main objective of this work is to study the impact response of bamboo Guadua from Colombia (known as Guadua angustifolia Kunth or just Guadua). Guadua is a very strength material widely used in structural applications in Colombia, including construction and transportation, for which the impact and dynamic behavior is no well established. Transverse samples were tested in both Charpy and compression Split-Hopkinson pressure bar (SHPB) tests. Flexural and compression strength tests were also included. Results revealed that bamboo Guadua as potential material for dynamic applications, comparable with some of the most ductile metals.
