Influence Lines forSimple Trusses

Instructional Objectives:
The objectives of this lesson are as follows.
Understand the bridge truss floor system and load transfer mechanism
Draw the influence line for the truss reactions
Draw the influence line for the truss member forces
40.1 Introduction
In previous lessons, we have studied the development of influence lines forbeams loaded with single point load, UDL and a series of loads. In similarfashion, one can construct the influence lines for the trusses. The moving loadsare never carried directly on the main girder but are transmitted across crossgirders to the joints of bottom chord. Following section will explain loadtransmission to the trusses followed by the influence lines for the truss reactionsand influence lines for truss member forces.
40.2 Bridge Truss Floor System
A typical bridge floor system is shown in Figure 40.1. As shown in Figure, theloading on bridge deck is transferred to stringers. These stringers in turn transferthe load to floor beams and then to the joints along the bottom chord of the truss.
