Types of loading - support reaction, Mechanical Engineering

Types of Loading:

Mainly three types of load acts on any beam;

1. Concentrated load (or point load)

2. Uniformly distributed load

3. Uniformly varying load

1. Concentrated load (or point load): If load is acting on a beam over very small length. It is called as point load.

2. Uniformly Distributed Load: For finding reaction, this load can be assumed as total load acting at center of gravity of loading (Middle point).
