There are good examples of circular and parabolic bow-string trusses in "The
Manual of Structural Design" by Singleton. My edition was printed in 1949,
by H.M. Ives & Sons, Topeka, Kansas. It is odd that there is no web site
listed (humor intended).
You can contact me privately if you don't have a good technical library at
your disposal. One of my favorite libraries is Linda Hall which can be
accessed on line at http://www.lhl.lib.mo.us/. Linda Hall Library is
strictly a technical library, and it is endowed, meaning that I can use it
for free. I am also fortunate that it is on my way home.
