What is load?

Sol. : A load can be defined as the combined effect of external forces acting on the body. The load is applied on body whereas stress is induced in material of the body. The loads can be classified as follows

1. Tensile load

2. Compressive load

3. Torsional load or Twisting load

4. Bending load

5. Shearing loads
