There is challenge to design the novel methods as well as technologies in order to satisfy the demands. The disasters like manmade or natural are having big threats on present scenarios in which it is required structural components development to manage the requirements of post disaster like mass and speedy construction of buildings. There are number of approaches presented to cope with such demands. Ferro cement is recent construction material. It is having number of unique characteristics and hence suitable for large number of Civil Engineering applications. In literature, numbers of methods are based on use of fibres and non-metallic reinforcements for Ferro cement, but such reinforcements are very costly and not available easily. Hence, it is required to have efficient and affordable non-metallic meshes for Ferro cement use. The efficiency of Ferro cement concrete slab with other materials depends on two important factors such as its impact and flexural load capacity. The dimension of wire mesh as reinforcement for flexural panel was 694mm*344mm. For impact panel specimen the dimension of wire mesh was 244mm *244mm. The different percentage of fly ash, 10%, 20% and 30% of cement was taken for experimentation shows Comparison between expanded and welded mesh that the performance of the welded mesh concrete slabs is far better than expanded mesh.
