Abstract: In this paper flexural analysis of ferrocement I-section beam is presented. Elastic- plastic behavior of ferrocement constituent materials was incorporated in the analysis. The analysis is based on deriving moment- curvature relationship obtained from the concept of equilibrium of forces and compatibility of strains. Later from the deflection equation of elastic beam, complete load- deflection response was obtained. Comparison with the test data on load- deflection relationship of ferrocement I- section beam showed a good agreement. A simple method for calculating ultimate load capacity of I- section ferrocement beam was proposed. The calculated ultimate load was found to be accurate when compared with the available test data of the average test/ calculated ratio equal to 1.05.
