Abstract: This article provides the behavior of polymer two way slab under four point concentrated loading. The slab with dimension of 600x600x75mm has been tested under simply supported condition. The slab was prepared with M20 grade concrete and this concrete mix was supplemented by 10% Bethemcharla stone powder and 10%Bisphenol-A epoxy polymer. In addition those additives steel fibers were added to the mix in the proportion of 0, 1 and 2% by volume. One more mix was cast without any additives and it considers as reference mix and used for comparison of other slabs. The slabs with additives in the mix showed superior performance in strength and stiffness characteristics. From the results it found that, the slab with 2% steel fiber showed 41.30% higher strength than the reference slab.
