Confinement is one way that can be used to improve the performance of reinforced concrete structures, mainly related to ductility. The parameter of the distance between the confinement becomes an important thing that must be studied its effect on ductility produced by a structural element. This study aims to study the effect of different distance between the confinement in compression zone in the beam at the plastic hinge area to the displacement and the behavior of the beam when it was given monotonic loading. The specimen model which is a simplified form of the plastic hinge area up front column will be fitted with a confinement in the compression zone which is attached to the shear reinforcement with different distances of 0, 70, 125 mm. Also made a beam with a crossties confinement spaced 125 mm for comparison. The presence of a centralized load in the middle of the span is intended to obtain the largest moment and shear areas in the plastic hinge. The test results showed that the installation of 125 mm intervals for confinement in the compression zone resulted in a higher ductility of 11-18% against the beam without confinement than the 70 mm interval which only increased by 2.78%. The hoops confinement produces higher ductility than crossties confinement for the same confinement interval. The increased confinement interval from 70 to 125 mm not yet significantly affect the moment capacity of the beam and the collapse was still dominant in the bending collapse although the distance between the stirrups and the confinement was slightly widened.
