One of the most sensitive decisions a structural designer should consider is choosing the type of consumables in the structure. This decision is in many cases dependent on the type of structure, financial issues also the experience and skill of the designer. The main aim pursued in the design is to obtain highly secure, economical structures. Concrete and steel are materials that are widely used in construction. The benefits of both materials are well known today. The clever combination of these two materials, an effective explosion-proof system, will have the effect of exploding explosions in the Plasco building in Tehran compared to using any of the materials. Lack of efficient performance factors, lack of clear and valid guidelines for the seismic design of such columns, how to model their geometry and material can still be obstacles to using such systems. In this research, according to the objectives of the problem, different parameters should be evaluated, this parameter is the type of column cross-section geometry. The aim is to determine the effect of defined parameters, especially column geometry, on the behavior and seismic capacity of composite columns) CFST(, achieving high resistivity, especially for columns that, incidentally, increase their loading exponentially with increasing classes. It is found that circular sections of composite columns )CFST( show better behavior and performance than columns with square geometry and further show that composite columns) CFST( can be used as a basic solution. Use it to solve challenges between designers and architects.
