Abstract: The lightweight panel is widely use in building infilled wall to reduce the building mass in lieu of brick walls. The present innovation works use bamboo and aerated concrete blocks into precast concrete panel. The average weight of the panel was 1650 kg/m3 compare to ordinary reinforced concrete 2200 kg/m3. Two type of panel dimension were used 40 cm x 80 cm x 3 cm and 60 cm x 120 cm x 4 cm. Bamboo reinforcement act as a structural framework of the panel and aerated concrete block (AAC block) functioning as infilled wall or cladding. Panels were loaded at the in- plane panels at two position, namely at the peak and at the middle panel height. When the load position was at the peak the average failure loads were120 N for small and large panel, the failure occurred at compression at top diagonal frame. when the load position was at mid panel, the average failure loads were140N for small panel and 260N for large panel, the failure occurred as shear cracks on the panel. The failure load of panel without aerated concrete blocks were130N for small panel and 215N for large panel.
