• Influence lines for reactions Influ r '"' Qualitative Influence Lines and Loading Patterns for an Multi-span Indeterminate Beam The MUller Breslau Principle, used previously to draw the influence lines for statically determinate structures, can also be extended to define the influence lines for indeterminate structures. This principle simply states that the influence line for afunction is proportionally equivalent to the deflected shape of the structure when it undergoes a displacement as a result of the application of the function. For indeterminate structures, an understanding of how complex structures deflect and react when acted upon by a force is required in order to draw accurate diagrams. To determine the influence line for the support reaction at A, the Miiller Breslau Principle requires the removal of the support restraint and the application of a positive unit deformation at this point that corresponds to the direction of the force. In this case, apply a unit vertical displacement in the direction of Y A. A I B C 0 E f ~ ;;:g;; I ;;:g;; c;;g;;; ;;;;g;;;; :iL SI S, ~ . ~ ; .... - _,8 C.. _ - ......... 0 f + r U'-_..: ......
