Stresses in a uniformly loaded circular-arc I-beam
"Expressions are derived by which the stresses may be computed for the case of a uniformly loaded I-beam bent about its minor axis to the form of a circular-arc. This type of structural member is unusual inasmuch as bending moments are induced in the flanges. These bending moments are not apparent from the use of the equations of equilibrium but must be determined from a consideration of the distortions of the beam. An example is given to illustrate the application of the expressions derived."--Synopsis.
