f. What is the importance of influence line diagram ?

Ans. Following are the uses of influence lines:

• i. Influence lines are used to depict how shear force and bending moment vary within a part that is being loaded or moved.
• ii. Influence lines provide guidance on where to place a moving load on a structure to maximise its influence at a given moment.
• iii. The related reaction, shear, moment, or deflection at the site can be determined using the ordinates of influence line diagram.
• iv. The structures on which the loads move over the span are designed using influence lines. The design of bridges, industrial crane rails, and conveyors, among other types of structures, are prevalent.

g. Define Muller-Breslau’s principal.

Ans. This concept states that “when the function acts on the beam, the influence line for the function (reaction, shear, or moment) is to the same scale as the deflected shape of the beam.”

h. What is radial shear and normal thrust in a three hinge arch ?

Ans. If 𝜽 be the inclination of any point X on the centre line of an arch, then the vertical shear Vx and horizontal thrust H would combine to produce aradial shear Rx and a normal thrust Nx at the section.

Then Rx = Vx cos 𝜽 – H sin 𝜽 and Nx = Vx sin 𝜽 + H cos 𝜽
