permanent/ dead load?
Explanation:
Hola B,

La concarga, he encontrado, también se llama carga permanente. Aquí van enlaces en inglés que espero te ayuden a decidir cuál es la traducción exacta. La construcción no es mi área preferida...

Primary Loads
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
The loading of a building structure can take on a wide variety of forms. In many cases the exact loading will not fit neatly into a specific category. Yet, loads can usually be considered to be Primary or Secondary. Primary loads are discussed below. Secondary loads are those loads due to temperature changes, construction eccentricities, shrinkage of structural materials, settlement of foundations, or other such loads. Despite the fact that each and every load and loading combination should be considered in order to reduce the chance of structural failure, the determination of the loading remains a statistical exercise. Each and every load cannot be foreseen; thus, it is critical to determine the worst case that is reasonable to assume to act upon the structure. The sources of primary loading include the materials from which the structure was built, the occupants, their furniture, and various weather conditions, as well as unique loading conditions experienced during construction, extreme weather and natural catastrophes.


Primary Loads are divided into two broad categories according to the way in which they act upon the structure or structural element. These are DEAD LOADS and LIVE LOADS. When considering the possible combinations of these two categories of loading, the odds of certain loads occuring simultaneously are assumed to be null. One such combination would be heavy snow, a typhoon, a raging fire and an earthquake. It is possible that two of the first three could occur as the earth quakes, but not that all four would be present at the same time. Thus, one need only consider reasonable loading combinations.


DEAD LOADS
Dead Loads are those loads which are considered to act permanently; they are "dead," stationary, and unable to be removed. The self-weight of the structural members normally provides the largest portion of the dead load of a building. This will clearly vary with the actual materials chosen. Permanent non-structural elements such as roofing, concrete, flooring, pipes, ducts, interior partition walls, Environmental Control Systems machinery, elevator machinery and all other construction systems within a building must also be included in the calculation of the total dead load. These loads are represented by the red arrow in the illustration.

Load Types

The LRFD Specifications separates loads into two categories: permanent loads and transient loads. Within each of these two broad categories are many sub-categories, and several additional load types have been defined. Each load type is now uniformly identified with a two-letter code.

Permanent Loads

With regard to permanent loads, several types are specified. Note that, previously, the structural dead load of a bridge was lumped into a single category. Now, however, it is separated into two categories, DC and DW, which allows different load factors to be applied to each type.

DD
Downdrag
DC
Dead load of structural components and nonstructural attachments
DW
Dead load of wearing surfaces and utilities
EH
Horizontal earth pressure
ES
Earth surcharge load
EV
Vertical pressure from dead load of earth fill

Explanation:
Your definition fits in with permanent load (as against live or dynamic load).
