Title: Lateral load on decks and mezzanines
I was wrong.  It's 0.5% of factored gravity loads to be added to any other sway effects.  That's probably negligible ...?

List,

I am wondering what some of you use for a minimum lateral load on independent mezzanines or decks due to human movement and also what you would use for a minimum deflection criteria. Assume that lateral seismic load is very small.

Thanks for you thoughts
