Abstract: This experimental study deals with assessing the potential of the steel slag as a partial replacement of fine aggregate along with wire mesh reinforcement in concrete mixes. The concrete mix is designed as per IS 10262: 2009 for target strength of 31.6MPa. With the partial replacement of fine aggregate with 10%, 20% and 30% of the steel slag and this replacement along with the one and two layers of wire mesh reinforcement.. The hardened properties like compressive, split tensile and flexural strength of concrete mixes increased with increase in percentage of replacement of steel slag up to 30% with wire mesh reinforcement. The test results show that the use of wire mesh with closely spacing decreases the crack width among those concrete specimens. Based on test results, it can be inferred that up to 30% replacement of the fine aggregate with steel slag along with the addition of layers of wire mesh reinforcement enhances the strength in concrete
