We study the stress-tensor distribution around the flux tube in static quark and anti-quark systems based on the momentum conservation and the Abelian-Higgs (AH) model. We first investigate constraints on the stress-tensor distribution from the momentum conservation and show that the effect of boundaries plays a crucial role to describe the structure of the flux tube in SU(3) Yang-Mills theory which has measured recently on the lattice. We then study the distributions of the stress tensor and

It is shown that a wide parameter range of the AH model is excluded by a comparison with the lattice results in terms of the stress tensor.
