Correspondence. ‘ The Determination of Influence Lines for Bridge Decks Monolithic with their Piers ’ by Dr. A. Williams, published in The Structural Engineer, May 1964

Mr. W. J. Larnach (Associate-Member) writes:- ‘This paper is of particular interest since it describes a method for the calculation of influence lines which in essence is identical with that which I have presented in an earlier paper1 and in my recent book. The only point of difference is the treatment of the effect of sidesway; the author uses an application of the reciprocal theorem (first proposed, it seems, in his reference 1) whilst I adopted the technique of shear balance.'
