  1. 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.
