Point loads are expressed in kips (1 kip = 1000 lbf = 4.45 kN), distributed loads are expressed in k/ft (1 k/ft = 1 kip/ft = 14.6 kN/m), moments are expressed in ft-k (1 ft-k = 1 ft-kip = 1.356 kNm), and lengths are in ft (1 ft = 0.3048 m). Step 1: Compute the reaction forces and moments May 02, 2017 · This video covers how to change both a triangular distributed load and UDL to point load. Converting from a UDL to point load is useful for finding support reactions, bending moment diagrams and ...
