DESIGN AND MODELING OF AN ENGINEERED BAMBOO STUD WALL IN SOLIDWORKS
Alternative, low carbon materials are emerging for use in construction. The presented research explored the use of laminated bamboo in a light-frame wood construction, a common method of building design. The research explored the design and modeling of a wall panel in SolidWorks to identify barriers in incorporating nonconventional materials in design and engineering. The results delved into the modeling, as well as the simulation of the structural behavior of an engineered bamboo stud wall.
