The purpose of this study was to define the influence of static longterm loads and cyclic freezing/thawing on the deflections and cracking of concrete beams with non-metallic reinforcement. The rods made of basalt fiber reinforced polymer (BFRP) and hybrid fiber reinforced polymer (HFRP) were used as non-metallic reinforcement. Four series of single span beams were loaded with a single static force in a three-point bending test, then specimens were subjected to 150 freezing/thawing cycles in a large-size climatic chamber. The experimental test results were compared to those obtained from prior carried out short-term tests and theoretical calculations based on ACI 440:1R-06 standard concerning concrete element with non-metallic reinforcement.
