Blast Load - The load on a structure caused by overpressure resulting from the ignition and explosion of flammable material or by overpressure resulting from a vessel burst.

Bundle Pull Load - The force required to pull the bundles out of the heat exchanger.

Earthquake Load - The effects of earthquake-induced forces on the structure and/or equipment as determined in accordance with the applicable design standard and code.

Impact Load - Loads produced as a result of unusual vibration and impact forces such as in machinery, elevators, moving loads, and crane and vehicle loads. An impact load is computed by multiplying the effective weight of the equipment and moving loads by a percentage increased factor as defined in the applicable design standard or by the instructions of the equipment manufacturer.

Live Load - Loads produced by the use and occupancy of the building or structure. Live loads include the weight of all movable loads, such as personnel, tools, miscellaneous equipment, movable partitions, wheel loads, parts of dismantled equipment, and stored material.

Snow Load - Loads on buildings or structures as a result of the accumulation of snow on their roofs as defined by the applicable design standard.

Thermal Load - Loads or effects produced by thermal expansion and contraction of equipment and piping.

Wind Load - Loads on a building or structure caused by the wind pressure as defined in the applicable design standard.
