Ferrocement is one of the earliest versions of reinforced concrete. In this, a challenge had been made to get out the flexural behavior of ferrocement experimentally and analytically. The slab panels of dimensions 600 mm × 1200 mm with a thickness of 300 mm. The slab panels were tested under the four lines loadings 300mm load distance. The analytical study was carried out by Ansys 14.5. The analytical results showed good agreement with the experimental results. The results demonstrated that employing expanded steel mesh reinforcing materials showed less deflection and more flexural strength compared with the welded slab panels.
