Curved Beam Design Spreadsheet


Typically an arch or curved beam in elevation will be sized using some of the same equations and checks as a simply supported straight beam. 
Differences will be found in the way axial compressive forces and bending moments are calculated due to a height component of the curve or arch (in elevation). 
Load cases that typically produce maximum shear and bending moment forces in straight beams will also differ from load cases used to analyze arched beams.
