I believe USS had a good booklet on this-about 15 yrs. ago. I will see if I can find it out in my garage. These are quite common in bridges.

I would appreciate a good and simple reference for designing curved steel beams.  The beam will be fixed at the ends and have a single concentrated vertical load at any point along the length of the curve.  Thanks in advance for your help.
