w11 16 S tatic s CEEn 103 Distributed Forces When you don’t know what you’re doing, do it neatly! Distributed Loads We have been working with forces that are point loads. Tis is not realistic! Most loads are distributed. Tree dimensional force distributions will be the subject of future classes. . . Tis Loading Function, W, gives force per unit length. w = w(x) N/m Some distributed forces are symmetric. Tey can be approximated by a loading function that measures the force at every position along a line. Loading Function Our Job Find equivalent point forces for the distributed loads, then proceed as usual. =
