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).
