1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the tributary load width. 2. Relevant equations - 3. The attempt at a solution Hi, I'm having trouble understanding the concept of the tributary load width. Can someone help me out with this. Attatched is the frame that we need to find the Tributary load width for. Can someone explain why it is 6m? I was thinking it would be 5+5/2 = 5m? Or can someone better define what the TLW is for me please. Ive attatched the two figures given to us for this question. Regards, Hai.
