Nowadays there is a need for quick period construction for our society. By comparing the commercial concrete construction, the Rapid wall construction gives good result for our construction needs in the society. Glass Fibre Reinforced Gypsum (GFRG) is a new building material and it is also known as Rapid wall building panel. It is mainly used to overcome the lack of natural resources like River sand, water, gravel, etc., The product gypsum is abundantly available as an industrial by-product waste. GFRG panels are a composite material consisting of calcined gypsum plaster and glass fibre. The panel contains cavities that may be filled with concrete and reinforced with steel bars to impart additional strength and provide ductility and also it can be used for the construction of walls, floor and roof slabs. It has light weight, high compressive strength, shearing strength, flexural strength, stiffness and ductility. It has high level of resistance to fire, heat, water and corrosion. Concrete infill with vertical reinforcement rods enhances its vertical and lateral load capacities. The rapid wall buildings are also resistant to earthquakes, cyclones, and fire. The paper carried out some of the literature studies in the different samples of GFRG panels performance in experimental wise.
