Abstract
The expansion and contraction of bamboo caused by temperature and moisture variations must be evaluated\ud if bamboo is to be utilised as a building material. However, detailed expansion data, especially data in the ascent and\ud descent processes of temperature and moisture are unexplored. The aim of this study is to investigate the expansion\ud characteristics of Phyllostachys edulis (Moso bamboo) in ascent and descent processes of temperature and moisture.\ud The measurement of linear thermal expansion and hygroexpansion of bamboo specimens were conducted with a\ud dilatometer and a micrometer, respectively. The temperature range of the linear thermal expansi...
