What is a Distributed Load Calculator?
A “Distributed Load Calculator” is a tool that helps analyze the effects of a uniformly distributed load on a beam.
It calculates the reactions at supports and the maximum shear force along the length of the beam.
Why use a Distributed Load Calculator?
Using this calculator is important for several reasons:
- Structural analysis: Helps engineers understand the internal forces and reactions in a beam subjected to a distributed load.
- Design considerations: Guides the design of beams to ensure they can safely support distributed loads.
- Load distribution: Assists in determining how a load is distributed along the length of a beam.
