In static problems, an evenly distributed load can be made into a point-force by multiplying the load by its length, and so this point-force will now act in the center of the distributed load. This is cool, but I can't find out how to do the same thing with loads that are unevenly distributed, those who are often shown as triangles, often with no force on one end and some force on the other.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

This page gives me a formula for determining the value of this point-force, but it does not tell me at which distance from one of the ends it acts!

If anyone can help me out I'll appreciate it!
