What is a Load Capacity Calculator?
A “Load Capacity Calculator” is a tool used to estimate the maximum load that a structure or component can safely support based on material properties, dimensions, and applied loads.
It is commonly used in engineering and construction to ensure structural safety.
Why use a Load Capacity Calculator?
Using this calculator is important for several reasons:
- Structural design: It helps engineers determine if a structure or component can safely support a given load.
- Material selection: Assessing load capacity aids in choosing materials suitable for specific applications.
- Safety considerations: Calculating load capacity ensures that structures meet safety standards and do not fail under applied loads.
