The tensile test is one of the most important and widespread tests on bamboo and materials in general. This test on bamboo presents some difficulties if performed according to International Standards, amplified in the case of thin bamboo. The aim of this study is to introduce a new tensile test set up able to improve the procedure suggested by International Standards to be applicable to all bamboo species including the thinner varieties growing in the temperate climate of Europe. Materials and techniques adopted in the procedure are easy to find and to be used. Results show the effectiveness of the procedure.
