Abstract: Solutions given in explicit form in cases in which central line of curved beam is cycloid, catenary or parabola and external forces are uniformly distributed along whole length of beam; curves of deflections, angles of twist, bending and twisting moments presented for certain cases and compared with corresponding values for circular bow girder.
