READING QUIZ 2. The line of action of the distributed load’s equivalent force passes through the ______ of the distributed load. A) Centroid B) Mid-point C) Left edge D) Right edge 1. The resultant force (F R ) due to a distributed load is equivalent to the _____ under the distributed loading curve, w = w(x). A) Centroid B) Arc length C) Area D) Volume x w F R Distributed load curve y
APPLICATIONS To analyze the load’s effect on the steel beams, it is often helpful to reduce this distributed load to a single force. How would you do this? There is a bundle (called a bunk) of 50 mm x 100 mm boards stored on a storage rack. This lumber places a distributed load (due to the weight of the wood) on the beams holding the bunk.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
