The Paper opens up a new issue of shear behavior of beams reinforced by ferrocement. The significant parameters utilized were shear reinforcement, stirrups and wire meshes. The replacement of wire mesh occurred in respect of the weight with stirrups. The influence of ferrocement was studied using the experimental inspection, and results of nonlinear finite element analysis. The experimental program includes seven (7) beams were tested using two-point loading system. Beams with welded wire mesh exhibited some amount of increase in shear capacity in respect of beams with reference & expanded wire mesh. Nonlinear finite element analysis was performed using Ansys 14.5. The analytical results demonstrated good consistent with the experimental results. Also, beams with wire mesh showed less number of crack patterns compared to the reference.
