BERALDO, Antônio Ludovico et al. MOIRÉ TECHNIQUE APPLIED IN COMPRESSION STRESS OF BAMBOO GUADUA. Maderas, Cienc. tecnol. [online]. 2007, vol.9, n.3, pp. 309-322. ISSN 0718-221X. doi: 10.4067/S0718-221X2007000300010.
Bamboo is considered an important raw material in developing countries because its physical characteristics associate lightness with high mechanical resistance. However its behavior obtained from mechanical tests is not yet well defined. This research work had the objective of evaluating bamboo (Guadua angustifolia) testing specimens under simple uniaxial compression loading. Shadow moiré optical methods had been employed to generate deformation mapping as function of knots (0, 1 or 2). Obtained results indicate that the technique is well adequate in generating iso-deformation contour lines in bamboo specimens
