    Abstract

    This paper commends the merit of the standards that have been published over the last
    decade (e.g. ISO 22156 and NSR-10), but observes that these standards provide limited
    guidance on ways to ensure building material will have adequate strength and stiffness. It is
    recommended that a procedure similar to that used for timber – strength grading – is
    researched, particularly the more efficient ‘machine strength grading’, though visual grading
    for bamboo is discussed too. Evidence is presented that correlations between physical
    properties – that are readily measured through non-destructive tests – and strength properties
    can be inferred for bamboo; hence, in principle machine strength grading could be possible.
    The limitations of the current data are stressed and a research proposal is presented.
