Abstract:
With the increasing population there is a tremendous exploitation of natural resources to produce conventional building materials such as bricks, cement and reinforcing bars. This exponentially increases their prices and also deteriorates the environment by production of large amount of greenhouse gases. So, there is a need to develop cheap and sustainable infrastructure. This paper presents an alternative sustainable infrastructure component – prefabricated bamboo reinforced walls beneficial for low cost housing. To determine the potential of these panels in the construction industry, the strength analysis along with the cost estimation and environmental impact analysis were also carried out for these panels. It was observed that these walls are 56% lighter in weight, 40% cheaper and have good strength as compared to partition brick walls. The benefits of these walls over the traditional brick walls were observed to be significant, through which it can be concluded that these wall panels have a great potential for low cost housing.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
