    Force loading on two seperate areas

    Eric Stanifer

      Have a flat plate with two seperate areas that will be loaded.  I have a load of 17000 lbs in the vertical down direction, would this load be divided equally on the two areas with two seperate forces or with one load of 17000lbs on the two seperate areas?  The loading areas are 3" wide, 12" long and 6" apart.
