Abstract: The purpose of this experimental research is to study the flexural behavior of Ferro-Geopolymer slab panels. Initially the ratio of binder to fine aggregate (1:2, 1:2.5, 1:3) and the ratio of Na2SiO3/ NaOH solution (2.5) is considered. The different combination of Fly ash and GGBS were considered. Ratio of alkaline liquid to binder ratio is fixed as 0.45. The Geopolymer mortar mix that gives compressive strength nearly equal to M20 grade concrete target mean strength was used to cast Ferro-Geopolymer slab panels. A slab of size (1000X1000X30) mm were cast of both ferrocement and Ferro-Geopolymer slab panels with two types of mesh were used such as square woven and square welded with single and double layers. Based on the results of slab load vs deflection of both types of meshes were compared from the characteristics of such as first crack load and ultimate load.
