Every zombie moive i have seen the zombies push down fences no matter if it's Barbed wire,razor wire,Concertina wire or a  high security facilities fences they just push it down like it nothing. How many people pushing on Barbed wire,razor wire,Concertina wire or a  high security facilities fences like around a Supermax prison would it take to push it down? also is there anything that could keep a zombie out? (pits, high stone walls ect..)

Chainlink fences can be broken down fairly easy with a large group of people.  Undead won't mind barbed or razor wire; that sort of wire would be better suit as a trap to slow down zombies, but not to kill them.  Concrete would never falter under just sheer numbers of human bodies.

Or a few of these, then fill them with earth or concrete.

OK, cause i always wondered if they could. I saw something of the undead movie and they were in a Super max prison and the zombie pushed down the 20 foot high fences and got in and i thought how could they do that?  then in Survival of the Dead they used hog pens/animal fences to kill the undead in line.

Best bet would be what Livy said. Get some Conex containers and fill them with earth. short or the zeds using machines they won't budge.

Fences get run down regularly at soccer games in India and Pakistan. It takes a big crowd, maybe a few hundred, but a fence won't keep out a concerted effort. In a prison the fence is more of a line in the sand, cross that, prisoner, and get shot, type of thing.

In my opinion, a pit would be more of a temporary obstacle. Once it's full, the other Zed cross on over. Also, the ones in the pit don't die and must be dealt with eventually. A good hig and thick stone or concrete wall, maybe a palisade or even a earthern wall would do the trick.

Given enough force, any wall ( wire or concrete ) will fail eventually.  Hundreds of people pulling or pushing on a wire fence will cause it to fail. A concrete wall of average height ( 6-8 ft and 1 ft width) will fail if over a thousand or more are pushing on it.

Note: I assumed average weight of 150 lbs per sq.ft. times number of people pushing on the wall.  That's why old fort's were much thicker at the base to prevent it from being pushed over and with moats to prevent uniform access to the wall. With enough bodies to fill it, as thasic says, even a moat can be useless...
