distributed load

Distributed load

A load distributed over the surface; unless otherwise described, it is usually considered uniformly distributed.

Distributed Load


in structural mechanics, a load that is distributed continuously over a given area or along a given line. A continuous load may be uniformly distributed, that is, have a constant intensity, or it may vary according to some other pattern, for example, linearly or quadratically.

distributed load

A load which acts evenly over a structural member or over a surface that supports the load.

distributed load

A load that is not concentrated on a point but distributed over an area.
