Definition of Linear Distributed Load:
Linear Distributed Load is load that spreads in specific manners (e.g. uniform, or nonuniform, vary from point to point) over the length of certain loaded members, typically like a beam. It is measured as a weight per unit length of member.
Abbreviations of Linear Distributed Load Units:
Unit of measurement: Abbreviation(s)
 Newton Per Linear Meter: N/m, or Npm
 Kilonewton Per Linear Meter: kN/m, or kNpm
 Tonne Per Linear Meter: t/m, or tpm
 Pound Per Linear Inch: lb/in, or ppi
 Kilopound Per Linear Inch: kips/in
 Pound Per Linear Foot: lb/ft, or ppf
 Kilopound Per Linear Foot: kips/ft
