Clint,

 

Roark’s Formulas for Stress and Strain has a section for curved beams.

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.
