**What is a Total Load Calculator**?

A total load calculator is a tool used to estimate the combined load applied to a structure.

It takes into account various types of loads, such as dead loads (permanent loads like the weight of the structure itself), live loads (variable loads like occupants or furniture), wind loads, etc.

**Why use a Total Load Calculator**?

**Structural Design:**Helps engineers design structures that can safely support all anticipated loads.**Safety Assessment:**Ensures that structures meet safety standards and do not fail under the expected loads.**Load Distribution:**Assists in distributing loads appropriately across various structural elements.

## Total Load Calculator

**How to use a Total Load Calculator:**

- Enter the dead load, live load, and wind load values in kips.
- Click the "Calculate" button.
- The calculator estimates the total load based on the provided inputs.

**Example of Calculator:**

Let's say you have the following information:

- Dead Load: 50 kips
- Live Load: 30 kips
- Wind Load: 20 kips

Total Load: 100.00 kips
