There was a query on 10% stiffness at base of column. This requirement was introduced in British Code. A paper was published on the subject in Structural Engineer in '80s. If I remember correctly, the idea was to provide for *some* moment for design of components downwards of column base.
Perhaps a better solution would be to assume the column as pinned at base and design base plate, pedestal and footing for 10% of the moment capacity of column.
