Best Answer

Bamboo has greater tensile strength (or resistance to being pulled apart) than steel, and it withstands compression better than concrete. However, untreated bamboo will swell from water absorption, significantly lowering its effectiveness.

Bamboo's tensile strength is roughly 28,000 per square inch versus steel's 23,000.
