Demand of Structural hollow section is a type of steel section which is widely used in structures. However, steel hollow section is slender. Thus, it can buckle and deflect easily when loads are applied. This review paper is to determine the strength and ductility of concrete filled hollow section. Composite column is formed based on combination of steel hollow section and concrete filled foam polypropylene fiber. Besides, with the used of foam polypropylene fiber, dead loads acting on the structure can be reduced and thus it proved to be lightweight concrete. Therefore, polypropylene fiber helps in increasing the ductility, strength, and buckling of concrete.
