axial load

axial load

[′ak·sē·əl ′lōd]
(mechanics)
A force with its resultant passing through the centroid of a particular section and being perpendicular to the plane of the section.

axial load, axial force

The resultant longitudinal internal component of force which acts perpendicular to the cross section of a structural member and at its centroid, producing uniform stress.

The specimens can be assigned into two groups, the first group (L60L, L75L, and L90L) with an axial compression ratio of 0.09 (the corresponding axial load is 200 kN) and the second group (L60S, L75S, and L90S) with an axial compression ratio of 0.24 (the corresponding axial load is 550 kN).
