The aim of the paper is to explain the particular problems related to the use of FRP reinforcement in bending beams. The paper compares the aspect of Serviceability Limit State (SLS) of simply supported concrete beams reinforced with Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymer (CFRP) bars and three various types of steel bars (the steel grades are 35G2Y, 20G2VY-b and B500SP). The computational analysis of change in crack width under the influence of various level of service live load was investigated. The calculations of beam reinforced with FRP bars was based on Italian design guideline (CNR-DT 203/2006) and the conventional reinforced concrete beams (RC) were analysed in accordance with the European standard Eurocode 2 (EN 1992-1-1:2004).
