crane / curved beam

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The best, easiest and safest way in dealing with a curved steel beam is to use a box section. Note that the governing internal force for a curved beam will be the torsion.
It is nearly impossible to obtain an acceptable stress or displacement value in curved configuration by using a "I" shape section only.
Note also that using a box section enables you to deal with out of plane reactions such as seismic or bracking forces.
