This project deal s with an investigational program to understood the flexural behavior of a Ferro cement composite slabs under mid third loading. The concept of composite slabs bring in shut decking or shear connectors are well established. But still, in countries like India, the application of same is li mited due to difficulties in manufacture and also due to concerns like fire resistance , durability , aesthetics etc. , this study is an attempt to exploit the concept of steel ? concrete composite to a comparable system in which steel sheeting is replaced by Ferro cement elements. These elements will act as permanent form work and also participating in the structural performance of the slab. The combination of Ferro cement slab with concrete slab, when the two are so connected that they act as a single unit i n resisting flexure is called as composite slab.
