Abstract:
This study aimed to evaluate some basic mechanical properties of selected bamboo species that are applicable to structural applications. Seven bamboo species planted inside the Central Mindanao University Campus were tested, namely: Dendrocalamus merrillanus, Elmer; Gigantochcloa atter, Hassk; Bambusa vulgaris Var. Schrad; Dendrocalamaus asper, Schultes. F; Dendrocalamus latiflorus, Rehm.; Bambusa vulgaris Schrad.; and, Bambusa blumeana, Schultes were subjected to four-point bending test, compression parallel to grain test and shear strength parallel to grain test. Data were taken from bottom, middle and top portion of the bamboos. Result showed that Dendrocalamaus asper, Schultes. has the stronger compressive strength at an average of 104.02 MPa...................

Abstract:
This paper will identify the negative long-term impacts of energy consumed, to reduce the construction waste short-term impacts. Construction waste contributes a great share of the total generated waste, the current construction waste problem resolutions, have more complications on the environment, the energy consumed to manufacture, transport, fabricate, recycle and recover or damp, release CO2 emissions. Environmentally, these emissions have negative impacts on long-term more than the construction waste accumulation itself. The paper will review several kinds of literature to calculate the total released CO2 emissions from a villa project, the calculations will consider the emissions released due to the energy consumed, from manufacturing till the completion of the waste treatment process. The study will only examine the project from the footings works up to the plaster completion; the finishes stage will not be considered due to several parameters, which will be mentioned later in the study.
