Ferrocement members can be used in the form of plates Such as for walling unit, marine structures etc. Such plates are subjected to shear buckling hence shear resistance capacity of plate need to be verified. Various authors have studied shear behaviour on different specimens such as box beams, panels, and plates. The ansys software used for finite element analysis (FEM) of plates. In the present study an attempt is made to observe behaviour of ferrocement plate with various mesh patterns. The results gives that Increasing the volume fraction (VF) of the wire mesh layer subsequently increases the shear carrying capacity of the plate To attain this advantage, supports and loading points should be design and strengthened to prevent local failure, Shear behaviour of ferrocement plates (SBFP).The stress intensity is determined using FEM (Ansys) and compared with the available results. it is observed that stress intensity as well as cracking shear strength of plate depends upon volume fraction. the available equations from literature can be used for analysis of mesh plate.
