Daniel: If you are requesting information on how to make a column base fixed, you should consider 3 components: Footing rotation Anchor Bolt elongation Base Plate flexibility You should be able to develop a equation to describe each component. For different combinations of each component, you should then be able to calculate what percentage of fixity you have achieved. >From a practical standpoint, the way to approach column fixity is 1) to use a foundation wall or grade beam to increase rotational resistance by tieing footings together. A large rectangular footing may also be a good option, if there are no other footings nearby to tie to. 2) to use large anchor bolts at large moment arms and 3) to use a thick base plate or one that is stiffened with gusset plates I hope this helps.
