Hello everyone,
 
When designing a one-story sloped-roof industrial building with span
100'~200', there are two choice for the column base, i.e., fixed and pinned.
 

1. considering only wind load, which is better, or both are acceptable? 
2. considering seismic load, which is better, or both are acceptable? 
3. if there is a crane with crane girder bracket welded at the column, which
is better, or both are acceptable?
 
Your opinions are highly appreciated.
 
Thanks,
 
Calvin Chang
