I have Produced a simple rocking column pilot model using SAP2000 and am getting an extremely large period which is incorrect. I have attached the model to this forum. The foundation is 6mx6m and the height and diameter of the column is 12m and 2.5m.

I believe the mass used in the modal participation is correct.
