This table is used in calculating moment value of rod blanks and rod deflection. Bamboo has different elasticity and weight by the specie, sometimes by the same culm of Tonkin. So the selection of bamboo affects to the deflection and action of a resulted rod. DynaRod can maintain attributes of elasticity and weight for several kind of bamboos in this table. Ofcourse, user can make entries of materials for rod which are different from bamboo, such as wood, grass fiber, carbon graphite, even for the different side of the same Tonkin culm, etc.. After making the entry in this table, user can select one on combo box when specifying rod specification. So far, several kind of bamboos are preset in the table which author investigated. Even natural round bamboo shoot can also be utilized in DynaRod. Tonkin (Chinese)

Hybrid RodThe table entry with TakeName="Hybrid" is recorded for the use of defining Hybrid/Hollow rod on specification panels. Not an actual bamboo name. Hybrid rod is the rod which uses different materials (bamboos) on each section and different specification of each section. For instance, tip is made from softer bamboo Suzutke and butt is made from stiffer Tonkin cane. The Tip is hollowed and the butt is solid. Etc. How to define MOE (Modulus of Elasticity):At first, we make a board like below; Using a bamboo specie, we prepare three kind of sample blanks with different dimensions; example: large: 7mm (0.275in) medium: 4mm (0.157in) small: 1mm (0.0039in) The length of samples are around; 30cm(11.8in) for small and medium diameter and 70cm (17.55in) for large diameter sample. Since the diameter and length are just used to calculate MOE, you can make them other appropriate number such as 0.3 inch instead of 0.275 inch, 0.004 inch for 0.0039 inch above. The length are also all right by 1 feet for small and large diameter and 2 feet for large dimension sample. The length from the edge of wood block to the end of the sample blank becomes (L). Though the sample is bent in the picture above, (L) is the length for the straight sample blanks. Set the sample like the picture above and hang some appropriate weight at the end of the sample, one by one. Then measure the length of (y) from the top end of the board to know how much it got down. Repeat this measurement for one sample blank by changing the weight with two to three kind of weight (e.g. 0.5 ounce and 1 ounce) and record all the trial for the values of; sample dimension, sample length(L), weight number(P) and for the sink (y). To get the more accurate result, we may need the more sample weights. We will average the results later. Do this for all the sample blanks. Now we have the experiment results for dimension (d), length (L), weight (P) and sink (y) for several different combinations. For each sample blank (d), we will calculate MOE by the formula below; y = PL^3 / 2 EI where ^3 means power of 3 As we want to know E (MOE or young's ratio), we can modify the equation like below; E = PL^3 / 2 yI I (ai) is the factor called "Moment of Inertia" which is decided for the each cross section as follows; Solid Hexagonal beam: I = 0.5413 * b^4 Hollowed Hexagonal beam: I = 0.5413 * (b1^4  b2^4) where b1 is outer side length and b2 is inner (hole's) side length. Solid Quad beam: I = 1/12 * h^4 where h is the length of side (=dimension) Hollowed Quad beam: I = 1/12 * (h1^4  h2^4) where h1 is outer side length and h2 is inner side length. Solid Round beam: I = pai/64 * d^4 where d is diameter and equal to dimension in this case. Hollowed Round beam: I = pai/64 * (d1^4 d2^4) where d1 is dimension and d2 is diameter of the hole. (inner diameter) Next, we will use MS Excel graph function to know the MOE formula
which is used in DynaRod. Then, we will create average (or approximation) curve on this plot graph. To do this, click the data on the displayed plot graph, then the data points are hilighted. Then click right button of the mouse and select [add average (approximation) curve]. Then, a pop up window for the average (approximation) is
displayed. Here, you can see a logarithmic graph and its formula of correlation as an averaged line. We need this formula in order to set the values in DynaRod table. These samples are shown on the graph below; for example, from the formula, y=27421509(x)+23944786, we get 27421509 as the value of MOE K and 23944786 as MOE C. You will set these number into the bamboo attribute table. Similarly, you can set bamboo weight factors as Weight K and Weight C. The following graphs shows MOE and bamboo weight per cubic inch.

pieces of actual bamboos. Actual measurement:
