The strength and deformation characteristics of concrete and steel-fiber concrete on prisms and cubes are determined. Short-term and long-term tests of the samples were carried out taking into account the recommendations of the regulatory documents for the testing of concrete. Loading of samples with a long load was carried out in force installations (stands) consisting of four metal rods to which rigid loading plates were fixed at certain levels with threaded connections. To cover the entire

All samples, which were more than a year under the action of a long-acting load, increased their bearing capacity. Prisms from steel-fiber concrete, which were under the influence of a long-acting load during 370 days, increased the bearing capacity, depending on the level of load, by 30-50%. The higher load level, the higher the creep rupture strength. When the loading was repeated before the destruction, the deformations of steel-fiberconcrete prisms changed linearly.
