Generally, confinement models of the steel-fiber concrete were very ductile because the fiber has a significant influence on the increase of the concrete deformability. Nevertheless, the existing steel fibrous confined models now have significant differences between each other, especially the peak stress value and post peak behavior. It is some of the different reviewed design parameters that affect the stress-strain equation of developed confined steel-fiber concrete. This paper investigated the existing confinement models to evaluate pre- and post-peak behavior of experimental results of confined steel fiber concrete for square sections. This paper has discussed models of existing steel fibrous concrete restraints compared to the results of experiments. In general, it can be concluded that the Hsu model is able to predict the best K value and ascending branch curve toward the experiment results. However, in the unfettered concrete ductility of the descending branch curve, the predicted values of ε' cc and ε50cc, it can be said that all the models reviewed are still not able to model properly. The difference is mainly due to the parameters reviewed to lower the restraints of each model are not the same. The comparison results presented in this paper recommend the need for more complete experimental research with broader parameters such as cross-sectional shape, fiber ratio, and restraint bone characteristics, in order to lower the model of restraint more generally.
