Base Plate Design
Base Plate should have sufficient

Size
Stiffness
Strength

to transmit the axial force, bending moments and shear
forces in columns to their foundations or other supports
without exceeding the load carrying capacity of these
supports.

Holding-down bolts should be provided where necessary.
