Impact load is defined as the force delivered by the sudden load on a structural member rather than a force applied constantly and sustained over a long period.

For e.g.

Throwing a bundle of wood from the 20th floor on the ground instead of simply placing it. The formula to calculate the impact load is the total kinetic energy dissipation divided by local deformation.
