Uniformly Distributed Load

Uniformly Distributed Load
A uniformly distributed load is one where the per square inch weight of the pallet load does not vary from one point to another on the pallet. This indicates that the load on a pallet is evenly distributed.

Any static load which is evenly distributed over the entire surface of the rack deck. A load, as on a shelf, or pair of load beams, supported by all, or nearly all of the shelf or beam supporting surfaces.
