Geopolymer Concrete is one of the emerging construction materials as a substitute for conventional cement concrete, eliminating the usage of Ordinary Portland Cement. This paper aims to provide the failure pattern and yield line behaviour of Geopolymer concrete two way slabs with polypropylene fibres and compare with the conventional reinforced cement concrete. The Slab model used is of 1000mmx1000mmx30mm reinforced with 4mm diameter steel mesh. The failure pattern was studied experimentally for slab subjected to uniformly distributed load with fixed condition all-round. The results obtained agree with behaviour of conventional concrete. The results were validated using finite element model.
