In the recent era, Concrete is the most consumed construction material in the entire world. Concrete is found to have excellent compressive strength but poor in tensile strength. To take care of the tensile strength steel is commonly used reinforcing material. Due to the increasing cost, unavailability and other drawbacks of the steel enforced to use an alternative material as reinforcement. This case is found common in developing countries. Bamboo is used as a construction material from the earlier times due to its advantageous and versatile properties. As it is good in tension and bending properties it has drawn the attention of researchers to use it as reinforcement in cement concrete. This study reflects about the usefulness of Bamboo as a structural member in flexural element. Various surface coatings on the Bamboo are given and the reinforcement cage has been prepared using the Bamboo stirrups. The flexure test was performed on the beam elements. Modulus of Elasticity has been calculated.

Keywords: Bamboo Specimen, Concrete, Crack, Flexure Test, Shear, Tensile Test
