APPLICATION OF TRANSFORMED HIGHWAY LOADS TO INFLUENCE LINES OF ANY SHAPE

PRINCIPLES PRESENTED IN THIS PAPER PERMIT REPLACING SEQUENCES OF CONCENTRATED LOADS BY MEANS OF EQUIVALENT UNIFORMLY DISTRIBUTED LOADS OF FINITE BASE LENGTHS FOR THE PURPOSE OF CALCULATING FORCE EFFECTS IN STRUCTURAL MEMBERS. ANY SHAPE OF INFLUENCE LINE ENCOUNTERED IN COMMONLY OCCURRING STRUCTURES IS CONSIDERED. CORRESPONDING TO FULL OR PARTIAL AREAS OF SUCH INFLUENCE LINES, SELECTED ANALYTICAL EXPRESSIONS FOR CALCULATING MAXIMUM FORCE EFFECTS ARE PRESENTED. THE GENERALIZATIONS OBTAINED ENABLE THE DEVELOPMENT OF DESIGN LOADS, LOAD LEGISLATION, PROCEDURES FOR LOAD RATING, DESIGN OF TESTING VEHICLES, AND THE STRENGTH EVALUATION OF BRIDGE STRUCTURES. /AUTHOR/
