Subject: circular beams
Date: Fri, 26 May 2000 10:03:16 -0500
i am looking for some basic text or reference on curved beam
behavior/theory. loading both parallel and normal to radius of curvature.
i am working on a couple of buildings that have significant framing that is
swept (circular) in plan. one is concrete and one is steel. aside from fea
methods, i want to check and ballpark the forces/stresses.
the only references i have found on the topic of swept beams are for
compisite steel bridge girders
and in rouark's. the bridge stuff is useless to me and the methods in
rouark's are not exacly quick.
any and all help is appreciated.
