Abstract(1863) PDF(848)
Xuyong county is rich in Pleioblastus amarus resources, covering an area of more than 40,000 mu. Pleioblastus amarus forests are mainly distributed in Longfeng, Xuyong, Tianchi, Shuiwei, and Lianghe town, their management is extensive, most of them are in a state of desolation, and the economic benefits are very poor. In order to improve the economic benefits of Pleioblastus amarus forests, poverty alleviation and cooperation experts from Zhejiang and Sichuan province carried out an early-shooting and high-yield cultivation technology experiment in Pleioblastus amarus forests in 2019. The experimental forest with an area of 13.6 Mu was established by replacing conventional covering materials with waste bamboo chips. The results showed that the surface soil temperature was obviously increased by the covering waste bamboo chips. The bamboo shoots appeared 77 days earlier than normal control and the shooting period was extended to 82 days. The yield was 24 t·hm-1 and the benefit was 260 thousand Yuan·hm-2. The covering cost was greatly reduced and the economic benefit was improved. The post-coverage waste bamboo chips can be reused as culture medium material of edible fungi under the forests to realize the secondary utilization. A set of early-shooting and high-yield cultivation technology of Pleioblastus amarus was proposed, this may provide a demonstration for farmers to increase their income and overcome poverty in Sichuan Province.

Abstract(1649) PDF(467)
Under three different management types of Phyllostachys edulis stands in Zhejiang Province,the characteristics of bamboo rhizomes and their age structure were investigated. The results showed that the rhizome length,diameter and internode length in the shoot-wood dual-use bamboo forest (Class Ⅱ) were greater than those in shoot oriented bamboo forest (Class Ⅰ) and wood oriented bamboo forest (Class Ⅲ). Class Ⅰ had the largest number of rhizomes and the smallest biomass. In terms of age structure,in Class Ⅰ Phyllostachys edulis stands,the largest rhizome length,number and the biomass were found in the 3-4 years old rhizomes,while in class Ⅱ and Class Ⅲ bamboo stands reached the maximum in the 5-6 years old rhizomes. Compared with class I and Class Ⅱ,the rhizome length,number and biomass of class Ⅲ showed a large proportion until 7-8 years old,the proportion of 3-4 years old was relatively low. However,the diameter and internode length of rhizomes showed no significant difference in various ages under the three management types.

2020, 39(2): 30-36.
Abstract(1556) PDF(161)
In Zizhuyuan Park,Beijing,covering an area of 45.73hm2,a variety of bamboos have been introduced since 1971. There are 44 species of ornamental bamboo belonging to 12 genera,which are the main landscape plants in the park. In recent years,the occurrence and spread of bamboo aphids not only affect the growth and development of bamboo,but also lead to the leaves lose green and turn yellow,appear rusty spots and fall off,and even cause individual plant death in serious cases,which makes a large area of bamboo forest degrade and affect the landscape effect. Therefore,fixed-site,regular investigation and analysis, were conducted to explore the damage situation and occurrence regularity of two bamboo aphids in Zizhuyuan,Beijing. It was found that the Takecallis taiwanus was harmful to many bamboo species,causing serious damage to the growth and development of Phyllostachys mainly in the park. The pests mainly concentrated on the back of bamboo leaves at the petioles or leaf tips,as well as the shoot tips and tender shoot parts. The damage occurred in 12 months round a year,and May and October were the two peak months. Meanwhile,the Takecallis arundinariae mainly caused serious damage to the growth and development of Phyllostachys bambusoides in the park. Its population mainly concentrated in the middle part of the back of bamboo leaves. July is the peak of the aphid's damage. It had poor activity in winter and overwintered with eggs. The results showed that eco-environmental factors affected the life cycle and quantity of the two aphids. The forecast of the two pests should pay attention to the temperature in Beijing and the microclimate in the park,and scientific management should be carried out in the bamboo growth cycle,including maintaining the appropriate planting density of bamboo forest,rational application of biological agents,protection and utilization of its natural enemies. The aim of this study is to take effective control measures of low pollution before the peak period of aphid occurrence.

Abstract(1730) PDF(139)
In order to explore the changes of density and porosity of bamboo in the process of fiber manufacturing, the delamination phenomenon of bamboo cross-section under continuous rolling load was studied by using computer tomography technology, and the influence of rolling times on the porosity and compactness of bamboo was analyzed. The results showed that with the increase of rolling times, the continuous directional fiber manufacturing process of bamboo experienced several stages: morphological destruction, bamboo chip densification, bamboo chip cracking gap and bamboo fiber separation. The changes of different stages can be distinguished by the value of pore density ratio. The bamboo with complete fiber manufacturing had obvious index characteristics in CT value. When the gap ratio of bamboo was more than 80%, the density ratio was less than 5%, and the gap density ratio was greater than or equal to 25, the bamboo slices showed the state of complete fiber bundle separation.

Abstract(1581) PDF(123)
A kind of hybrid panel, which is made of wooden frame covered by orthogonal oblique placement bamboo strips on one side, was tested. In order to explore the response of the panel under vertical and horizontal load, it was destroyed by the pseudo-static action to measure the ultimate horizontal bearing capacity and deformation capacity. Furthermore, the hybrid panel was destroyed by the low cyclic loading to study its seismic bearing capacity, deformation capacity, failure process, hysteretic curve and skeleton curve feature. The results showed that the bearing capacity, stiffness, ductility and energy dissipation capacity of the hybrid panel were much better than the light wood frame construction because of the hybrid effects between bamboo strips and wooden frame. It was feasible to build low-rise buildings by using hybrid panel as load bearing walls in the 8 degree seismic fortification regions.

Abstract(4004) PDF(197)
Taking the bamboo forest scenic area in Southwest China as the research object, the analytic hierarchy process (AHP method) was used to construct an index system with 5 criterion levels and 20 indicators to evaluate the landscape of scenic bamboo forests. The layer weight is the aesthetic index of the forest (0.2864) > the health index of the bamboo forest (0.2442) > the structure index of the forest (0.1769) > the characteristic index of the understory (0.1663) > the bamboo measurement index (0.1262). The beauty degree evaluation (SBE) was conducted,and the correlation between the category level of the main influencing indicators (visibility, lodging degree, standing bamboo density, understory uniformity, average height under the first branch) in each criterion level and the value of bamboo forest beauty was studied. The results showed that people preferred the bamboo forests with the first branching height above 5.5 m, the bamboo density of 6 000~12 000 plants·hm-2 for scattered bamboos and 700~1 100 clusters·hm-2 for clumping bamboos, and almost no lodging or lodging number ≤2 plants, neat understory,and visibility more than 20 m. Thus, suggestions for improving the landscape of the scenic bamboo forests were proposed.

The Application of Bamboo Fiber in Automobile Composites
2020, 39(2): 89-93.
Abstract(552) PDF(91)
Bamboo fiber (natural bamboo fiber, also known as bamboo raw fiber) is a new kind of plant fiber, which is different from chemical bamboo viscose fiber (bamboo pulp fiber, bamboo charcoal fiber). As a basic material with excellent performance, bamboo fiber can be widely used in the production of composite materials such as textile, nonwoven, building materials and automobile materials. The development of lightweight reinforced composites is an important trend to achieve lightweight. Nevertheless, the cost of commonly used carbon fiber reinforced composite material is high. Although the glass fiber modified composite technology is the most mature, there are some limitations, such as low toughness, high brittleness, high mechanical wear, high energy consumption, easy water absorption, coarseness, non-degradation, and difficult to be disposed. It is found that the bamboo fiber composite prepared with the natural environment-friendly bamboo fiber as the reinforcing material has the characteristics of low density, high modulus and high strength, which is very suitable for the lightweight of automobile parts. Compared with traditional composite materials, bamboo fiber composite materials are lighter in mass, less in energy consumption, and emit very low carbon throughout their life cycle, which is more in line with the requirements of "green environmental protection and low carbonization" in modern society.
