This chapter presents the special cases of loads with or without mass moving over a bridge structure.
More specifically, the cases of concentrated loads and uniform loads are treated taken into account the effect of
damping. Dynamic influence lines are presented for each case taking into account the effect of load mass as well.
The influence of deck irregularities is also presented in brief form.
