Ferrocement is largely used material in today’s modern structural engineering technology. In this case study the main aim is to study flexural behavior of ferrocement by replacing cement content by 5%. In this study, 40 cubes were tested to get desirable compression strength results and engineering properties input data. Various test specimens in the form of ferrocement plate of sizes (400x200x15) mm, (500x200x20) mm, (600x200x25) mm, (800x200x30) mm and tested analytically with three-point loading with linearly varying load. Equivalent stress and deflection are the main parameters of this study. From the results, it can be concluded that 5%replacement of marble powder and increasing number of layers has proven to be good at increasing strength and reducing deflections.
