Abstract

The potential of bamboo in erosion control and slope stabilisation has been proven worldwide. Bamboos are being used as living plants as well as construction material in different soil bioengineering techniques in many countries. The soil and water bioengineering approach is combined with bamboo traits and mechanical properties. The existing accumulated experiences of using bamboo in soil and water bioengineering works, along with the existing standards and design guidelines, make bamboo species an essential and cost effective material for erosion control and slope stabilisation works. In this chapter, all the necessary aspects to be taken into account for an appropriate use of bamboo in soil bioengineering works are addressed and the design approaches for soil bioengineering works using bamboos are presented.

Introduction Bamboo is a globally distributed group of plants with more than 1400 species distributed worldwide in tropical, equatorial and semitropical biomes. It builds important and diversified habitats with different specificities, according to the nature of the species and the general ecological conditions. Most bamboo species show a very strong development and colonization ability, determining that in some temperate habitats, they can assume an invasive character. {\circledC} 2018 The Author(s).
