If you have the mass in kg - the load in kN can be calculated as
F = m g / 1000 (1)
F = load (N)
m = mass (kg)
g = gravitational acceleration (9.81 m/s2)
The load from a pallet with mass 800 kg can be calculated as
F = (800 kg) (9.81 m/s2) / 1000
= 7.8 kN
Loads - forces and torque, beams and columns.
Stress, deflections and supporting loads.
Supporting loads, stress and deflections.
Typical loads on building foundations.
Load capacity of simply supported concrete slabs.
Carrying capacities of domestic timber floor joists - Grade C - metric units.
Floors and minimum uniformly distributed live loads.
Douglas Fir in horizontal roof rafters and maximum spans.
No. 1 and No. 2 Grade of Douglas fir and maximum span floor joists - imperial units
Allowable uniform loads.
