I just designed a large discharge pipe into a reservoir that made a 90 degree angle. The thrust on the pipe was relative to the weight of the water and the velocity. I think you could do something similar here. I have to run to a meeting so I don't have time to look up the formula but it's a common hydraulic problem.

I have a 6-ft wide wood-framed exterior one-story stairway/exiting-corridor, no roof. At about mid-height is a landing supported on 4x4 posts where the stairway makes a 90 degree turn. I have the feeling that lateral loads due to wind and seismic loading will be relatively insignificant compared during emergency exiting with people turning the corner. Any ideas on how to estimate or calculate the appropriate lateral load?
