Abstract: In a developing country like India, there is an increasing demand for RCC. The major component of RCC is steel. Steel is an alloy of carbon. In manufacturing processes of steel lots of energy is required. For such energy, lots of natural energy sources are used which can adversely affect the environment. For sustainable development, Bamboo may be a proper replacement for steel. Bamboo is fast growing grass which easily cultivated in any types of land. For replacement of bamboo, the bond between bamboo and concrete must be strong. The bond strength of bamboo and concrete is a major concern in the use of bamboo. The surface of the bamboo is naturally coated and has a smooth surface. Due to smooth surface bond strength is decreasing. For increasing bond strength there must be the proper coating for bamboo. In this paper, a solution is used for coating. For roughness, the surface is coated with sand with a solution. For comparing bond strength of different coated surface pull out the test is carried out. For pull out, test samples with the various coated surfaces are cast and tested after 7, 14 and 28 days. The result shows an increase in bond strength of the coated surface.
Keywords: Bond strength of bamboo, Pull out test, Surface coating, development length.
