Influence Line 1

INFLUENCE LINES PRELIMINARIES Moving loads -- Loads applied to a structure with points of application (including their magnitude) can vary as a function of positions on the structure. Examples of moving loads include live load on buildings, traffic or vehicle loads on bridges, loads induced by wind and earthquake, etc. In the analysis, the moving loads can be modeled as varying distributed loads, a series of concentrated loads, or the combination of distributed loads and concentrated loads.

Influence Line 2

Responses due to a moving unit load -- Quantities of interest at a particular point within a given structure, e.g. internal forces, support reactions, deformations, displacements and rotations, due to an applied moving unit load. The quantities are given in terms of functions of a position of a moving unit load on the structure; these response functions are termed as the influence functions and their graphical representations are known as the influence lines. Application of the influence functions (lines) Let fA be a quantity of interest at a point A within a given structure due to applied distributed load q and a series of concentrated loads {P1, P2, …, PN} and fAI denote the influence function of the corresponding quantity at point A. By a method of superposition, we obtain the relation of fA and fAI as

where the integral is to be taken over the region on which load q is applied and xi indicates the location on which the load Pi is applied. For instance, assume that the influence line of the support reaction at point A (RAI) of the beam is given as shown in the Figure 3a. The support reaction at point A (RA) due to applied loads as shown in Figure 3b can then be obtained using Eqn. (1) as follow: L/2

Influence Line 3

In addition, the influence lines can also be used to predict the load pattern that maximizes responses at a particular point of the structure. For instance, let consider a two-span continuous beam subjected to both dead load (fixed load) and live load (varying load) as shown in the figure below.

To determine the maximum positive bending moment at points A, the maximum negative moment B, and the maximum positive shear at point A due to these applied dead and live loads, we construct first the influence lines MAI, MBI, and VAI as shown below.

¾ Influence functions are obtained by considering all possible load locations ¾ Support reactions

MBI

x

-- Equilibrium equations of the entire structure ¾ Internal forces -- Method of sections

VAI

-- Equilibrium equations of parts of the structure ¾ Displacement and rotations -- Determining support reactions and internal forces from equilibrium

It is evident from the influence lines that the maximum positive bending moment at point A occurs when the live load is placed only on the first span; the maximum negative moment at point B occurs when the live load is placed on both spans; and the maximum positive shear occurs when the live load is placed on the first half of the first span and on the second span. The maximum value of the responses can then be obtained using Eqn.(1) for each corresponding loading pattern. It is noted that the dead load is fixed and therefore it is applied to both spans of the beam for all cases.

-- Displacement and rotations are obtained from 9 Direct integration method 9 Moment area and conjugate structure methods 9 Energy methods, etc.

The influence functions of the internal forces can be obtained in terms of the influence functions of the support reactions; therefore, the influence lines of internal forces can be readily obtained from those for support reactions. 3.

Introduce unit relative virtual displacement between the two ends of the shear release with their slope remaining the same (provided that the moment constraint exists at that point) 4. The virtual displacement at all other points results from the development of the mechanism (or rigid body motion) of the entire beam. 1 Virtual System 2a

Virtual Displacement -- The fictitious and arbitrary displacement that is introduced to the structure. For use further below, the following three types of virtual displacement for the beam structure are considered: RELEASE shear constraint

¾ Virtual displacement due to release of a support constraint. 1. Release a support constraint in the direction of interest 2. The beam becomes statically unstable (partially or completely) 3. Introduce unit virtual displacement (or unit virtual rotation if the rotational constraint is released) in the direction that the support constraint is released. 4.

Principle of Virtual Work: Consider a system or structure subjected to external applied loads. The support reactions and internal forces at any locations within the structure are in equilibrium with the applied loads if and only if the external virtual work (work done by the external applied loads) is the same as the internal virtual work (work done by the internal forces) for all admissible virtual displacements, i.e.

Muller-Breslau Principle: “The influence line of a particular support reaction has an identical shape to the virtual displacement obtained from releasing the support constraint in the direction of the support reaction (under consideration) and introducing a rigid body motion with unit displacement/unit rotation in the direction of the released constraint.” Influence Line for Shear Force. Let assume that the influence line of the shear force at point C, VCI, is to be determined. By applying the principle of virtual work to the actual system with a special choice of the virtual displacement as indicated in the virtual system 2a (the virtual displacement associated with the rigid body motion of the beam resulting from the release of the shear constraint at C) , we obtain

It is important to note that the portion of the structure that undergoes virtual rigid body motion (virtual displacement that produces no deformation) produces zero internal virtual work. Influence Line for Support Reactions. To clearly illustrate the strategy, let assume that the influence line of the support reaction RAI is to be determined. By applying the principle of virtual work to the actual system with a special choice of the virtual displacement as indicated in the virtual system 1a (the virtual displacement associated with the rigid body motion of the beam resulting from the release of the displacement constraint at A) , we obtain

Gv(x) Virtual System 1a RELEASE displacement constraint

Muller-Breslau Principle: “The influence line of the shear force at a particular point has an identical shape to the virtual displacement obtained from releasing the shear constraint at that point and introducing a rigid body motion with unit relative virtual displacement between the two ends of the shear release with their slope remaining the same.”

Influence Line for Bending Moment. Let assume that the influence line of the bending at point C, MCI, is to be determined. By applying the principle of virtual work to the actual system with a special choice of the virtual displacement as indicated in the virtual system 3a (the virtual displacement associated with the rigid body motion of the beam resulting from the release of the bending moment constraint at C) , we obtain

Muller-Breslau Principle: “The influence line of the shear force at a particular point has an identical shape to the virtual displacement obtained from releasing the shear constraint at that point and introducing a rigid body motion with unit relative virtual displacement between the two ends of the shear release with their slope remaining the same.”

The value of the influence line at other points can be readily determined from the geometry, for instance,

h2

(1)(3L/2 ) /(L) 3/2

h3

(1)(L/2 ) /(L) 1/2

h1

(3/2 )(L/4 ) /(L/2 ) 3/4

The influence line of the shear force VEI is obtained as follow: 1) release the shear constraint at point E, 2) introduce a rigid body motion, 3) impose unit relative displacement at point E and 4) the resulting virtual displacement is the influence line of VEI.

The influence line of the bending moment MEI is obtained as follow: 1) release the bending moment constraint at point E, 2) introduce a rigid body motion, 3) impose unit relative rotation at point E without separation and 4) the resulting virtual displacement is the influence line of MEI.

Solution By Muller-Breslau principle, we obtain the influence lines as follow: 1) release the constraint associated with the quantity of interest, 2) introduce a rigid body motion, 3) impose unit virtual displacement/rotation in the direction of released constraint, and 4) the resulting virtual displacement is the influence line to be determined. It is noted that values at points on the influence line can be readily determined from the geometry.
