standard load

[′stan·dərd ′lōd]
(design engineering)
A load which has been preplanned as to dimensions, weight, and balance, and designated by a number or some classification.

Standard Load


(in structural mechanics), the maximum load occurring in normal use of buildings and structures. It is used in limit-state structural design. Values for the standard load are usually introduced into calculations for fatigue strength and strains of structures, as well as for cracking and the crack width (in the case of reinforced-concrete structural members, if impermeability is not required).
