Abstract

•Detailed characterization of a variety of bamboo as a transversely isotropic, radially graded material has been conducted. •Fracture resistance curves have been obtained under all possible combinations of crack growth and loading direction. •The roles of the taper profile and radial grading of properties have been investigated. •It is suggested that the plant ensures survival by converting all short flaws into longitudinally propagating ones.
