This paper presents evaluation of seismic design code for AASHTO, Eurocode 8, NZS 3101, and ATC-32 and influence of parameter such as confinement steel ratio, axial force ratio, aspect ratio and longitudinal steel ratio. These seismic design code prescribe confinement steel ratio for appropriate seismic performance which is considered various design parameter. But there is doubt that these parameters are considered rationally in seismic design code. The object of this research is rational evaluation of seismic performance by analysis of existing related experimental research. According to this research, most influence parameter of seismic performance is axial force ratio.
