The article describes the selected methods of calculating the deflection of steel fiber reinforced concrete beams. Additionally, the results of the study on the deflection of steel fiber reinforced concrete beams based on waste sand are presented. This paper compares deflections measured during the four point bending test of the steel fiber reinforced, waste sand fine aggregate concrete beam with values determined in accordance with Eurocode 2, the proposal of Tan, Paramasivam, and Tan, the modified method of Alsayed, Bywalski, and Kaminski, and Amin, Foster, and Kaufmann's method. The analysis conducted shows that the best accordance with the study and calculation results was obtained by using the modified Alsayed method.
