How to draw influence line in Sap2000

How to draw influence line in Sap2000

How to draw influence line in Sap2000

I know bridge analysis of Sap2000 will use influence line. But now I just want to get the influence lines themselves and need not further analysis, for example, the influence line of shear at one point along a simple supported beam. How can do it? Thank you very much!

RE: How to draw influence line in Sap2000

There is an option in DISPLAY icon, i am sure u will find the Influence LIne option. If you want to generate influence line just use unit load in the bridge analyis module and u will be there.
Thats all u have to do

RE: How to draw influence line in Sap2000

I am using Sap2000V8. Yes, I see 'influence line' in Display menu. But how can I add an unit moving load? I think in order to get influence line, I still have to define lanes, vehicles, vehicles classes and etc. Right?  what I do now is to add a new general vehicle in which I input an unit load at the first axle load. Then define moving load analysis case and analyze. Right? Thank you very much.
