Hi all

I am new & just started learning structure engineering to become a successful enginner.

I have attached an image

In one of the image i want to know why wind load acts 2 m fro, bottom ?
Why can't we assume wind load start acting at the base itself.

Regards

The wind load is acting throughout the height of the column. That is how the total load is worked out as 4kN/m x 4.00m = 16kN. Now, this uniformly distributed wind load is supposed to act at its centre of gravity, which faciltates computation of BM. This is at the centre of the column, which lies at 4.00/2 = 2.00m.
