A shock load is considered to be any sudden change in load from a relaxed or low load situation to a high load situation.
Any load which exceeds the normal working load by more than 10% is considered to be a shock load.
Synthetic fibers have a memory and can retain the effects of being overloaded or shock loaded. This can result in a later failure of a rope/webbing/threads while still within its working load limits.
