Currently in concrete technology a lot of materials were introduced to improve the quality and properties of concrete. Additional materials include the use of steel fibers into the concrete mix. With the used of steel fibers, it can enhance the strength of the concrete. In this research, two parameters will be investigated which is the volume friction of the steel fiber and the length of the steel fiber. End-hooked steel fiber with the length of 33 mm and 50 mm and the percentage of steel fiber 0.5 %, 1.0 % and 1.5 % used in this research. The size of the mold used is 100 mm x 100 mm x 100 mm. The characteristics during the fresh concrete were also investigated by conducting the slump test, compaction test and vebe test. All the samples has been cured in the water for 7th, 14th and 28th days for the compressive strength test. Based on result, it was concluded that the optimum percentage of steel fiber in this report was 1.0 % for the end-hooked steel fiber with 33 mm length which provided the highest compressive strength at 28 days
