General Theory of Influence Lines

  • Igor A. Karnovsky
  • Olga Lebed


Construction of influence lines for one span simply supported and cantilevered beams in case of direct and indirect load applications are considered. All influence lines are constructed using analytical expressions for required factor. Applications of influence lines for fixed and moving loads are discussed. This chapter forms the set of concepts which creates a framework for comprehensive analysis of different statically determinate structures.
