Hi there,
Parallel distributed loads are throwing me off a little at the moment. Is the resultant worked out the same way as for those with distributed loads perpendicular to a beam?? Picture included. Thanks in advance

An axial distributed load such as you've drawn would have a cumulative effect, so the force at the right end of the beam would be the sum of all forces to its left. In effect, you've drawn a force which increases with position from left to right.
