Some Aspects of the Mechanical Solution of Influence Diagrams

In all the structures with which it is proposed to deal it is assumed that the displacements caused by the application of loads are so small that in calculating the forces in the various parts of the structure its initial form may be assumed. In most structures this may be done without appreciable error and, as a consequence, we may express any static function H, such as a reaction R, a force S, a bending moment M, a shearing force Q, deflexion...
