Is there any reference to indicate how much percentage lateral force does gravity load cause? For example, if there is a freestanding deck to be designed for gravity load, we also have to design it for lateral movement/ load caused by gravity load. How do we calculate the lateral load in this case? Wind load and seismic is not important in this case. I would appreciate your inputs.
