Once the influence line diagram is plotted we can easily locate the
position of load for the maximum value of
a structural response function.
This is extremely helpful in designing the structural components
subjected to live loads and making provisions to accommodate those
changes or alterations in the values of structural response. In the
case of an
overhanging beam it very clear that direction of the support
reaction will reverse if the load is placed on the overhanging part
instead of between the supports.
It
is also noticed that all statically determinate beams will have
influence lines which are linear. Click on the following links to
know more about influence line.
