# What Is A Carried Load In Building Construction?

**A carried load in building construction is a type of load that is supported by the structure itself, such as the weight of the building’s structural elements, non-structural partitions, built-in cupboards, and other materials. Carried loads are also known as dead loads or permanent loads.**

In addition to carried loads, buildings and structures must also be designed to resist live loads (such as people walking around in a building), wind load, earthquake loads, thermal loads, and settlement loads. Load combinations result when more than one type of load acts on the structure.

**How To Calculate Carried Load?**

**To calculate the carried load in building construction, one must first determine the total load acting on a header or beam by adding up all the loads, including live load, dead load, wind load, earthquake load, and snow load if applicable. **

The live load is used to compute stiffness while the total load is used to calculate strength. The self-weight of the slab should also be taken into account when calculating the total load.

Once all of these loads have been determined, they can be translated into terms of how much load each lineal foot of header or beam carries.

Additionally, it is important to factor in a safety margin when calculating the total load on a column.

Finally, one should use permissible values for live loads as per IS-875 1987 part 2 when calculating live loads for a building.

**What Are 3 Examples Of A Load?**

**An electrical load is any electrical device or component that consumes electrical energy and converts it into another form. There are three main types of electrical loads: resistive, capacitive, and inductive.**

Resistive loads obstruct the flow of energy in the circuit and convert it to thermal energy. Examples include incandescent lights, toasters, ovens, space heaters, and coffee makers.

Capacitive loads draw current in a way that is out of phase with the voltage.

Examples include capacitor banks, buried cables, and capacitors used in various circuits such as motor starters.

Inductive loads use magnetic fields to operate. Examples include motors, generators, and transformers.

**What Are The 3 Types Of Loads That Must Be Considered In Bridge Construction?**

**Three types of loads that must be considered in bridge construction are dead load, live load, and dynamic load**

Dead load refers to the weight of the bridge itself, including its foundation, beams, cement, cables, steel, or any other materials used in its construction.

Live load is the moving weight the bridge will hold such as traffic and is based on traffic patterns that include the number of cars, trucks, and other vehicles that will travel across it at any given time.

Dynamic loads are outside forces that cannot be accurately measured such as wind, vibration, and extreme weather. Temperature fluctuations, vehicle brakes, earthquakes, and other environmental factors must also be taken into consideration when designing a bridge.

HA loads are uniformly distributed loads on the bridge deck which must also be considered in the design.
