Research Description The project will develop appropriate science and technological innovation on extending the service life of bamboo for musical instruments.
Research Objectives To assess and upgrade the existing processing method of local makers of bamboo musical instruments; To determine the appropriate preventive and remedial treatment technologies against insect and fungal attack in maintaining the sound quality and aesthetic value of bamboo musical instruments; To establish a drying schedule for bamboo and evaluate its effect on the acoustic/sound quality of bamboo To generate information on the physicomechanical and acoustical properties of unmodified and thermally modified bamboo for musical instruments; To evaluate the effects of finishing properties using various coating systems and techniques on the sound quality of bamboo; and To produce bamboo musical instruments using the best processing method
Research Beneficiary(ies) Local bamboo and bamboo musical instrument industry, educational institutions; general public
