Title: RE: curve steel beams

Is the beam curve on plan or elevation?  If it curve on plan then there is torsion, if not, then you only have bending and shear.

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.
Francisco M. Duarte s.

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?
