    Urgent! Definition needed for "radiation load"

    Hi, not really a typical problem, but I have no idea what "radiation load" means and I can't find a definition anywhere. Any help would be great.

    Thanks!

    Depends on the context. In a cryostat it would be the thermal power load on a component or a sheild from the warmer components.

    Can you tell us something more about the context where you heard about this term ?
    Where did you read this ?
