It is based on the assumption that the strain induced in a structure due to the passage of a moving load is proportional to the product of the influence line ordinate and the magnitude of the load.
The processed signal, in conjunction with the influence line, is used to calculate the static axle weights.
The influence line for a beam is a graph or a curve, representing the variation of the shear force, bending moment, deflection or other parameters due to a unit load traversing along the beam axis [1-4].
This last equation can be considered as the influence line for the deflection of non-prismatic beams.
