The main objective of this investigation is to study the axial and flexural behavior of Ferrocement-LGS composite section when subjected to half cyclic uniaxial compression and half cyclic 4 point bending. The connection between the ferrocement LGS composite was done by self-tapping gypsum screw. 3 different specimen of length 450mm and 900mm are connected with 150mm screw spacing and epoxy are tested under axial loading and 2 specimen of length 900mm with different screw spacing of 150mm are tested under flexural loading. The parameters studied here are load carrying capacity, maximum deflection/deformation, damping, stiffness degradation, load vs deflection curve, bending moment capacity, modulus of elasticity and failure pattern. Comparison of results with different specimen are done. This research will further provide guidance for study on ferroocement LGS composite system for construction
