RE: curve steel beams

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Mr. Scholl,

The curve beams have radius of 8'-6" and 10'-6"
THE CURVE BEAM ARE TO SUPPORT FLOOR LOAD AND SINCE IT IS A RESIDENCIAL
STRUCTURE 
EITHER WOOD OR STEEL IS THE CHOICE OF MATERIAL.
SO tORSION IS THE PROBLEM?

Thank you for your respond.

torsion analysis is not simple. The top nailer of wood is the easy part-
just cut it from two layers of 3/4" plywood.
What is the radius of the curve? What is the use? Is concrete a
possiblility?
