440:221 Lectures pplications Applications … There is a bundle (called a bunk) of 2” x 4” boards stored on a storage o analyze the load’s effect on the steel beams it is often rack. This lumber places a distributed load (due to the weight of the wood) on the beams holding the bunk. School of Engineering, Fall 2009 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?
