  1. Pin Support Or Fixed Support

    Assalam o alaikum all, How to decide what type of support should i provide at base of my building in ETABS?? If I provide pin support then sway of my building is 1.5 in and if i provide fix support then sway reduces to 0.9 in. Some one in this forum replied to a thread (I am unable to find the same thread) that if soil is stiff then we can provide fix support other wise pin support for loose soil. But I think it is upto our will then whether we provide fixed or hinged, sizes of our footings will become accordingly. In my case, building is in Quetta with BC 0.75 tsf. Suggest me please.
