Abstract: The analysis of continuous curved I-beams requires the prediction of deflections for various loadings on the structure. The simplest structural element is the cantilever; therefore, the equations for deflections are derived for a circular curved, cantilever beam. The equations are presented in a series form for ready programming in an electronic computer. Tests indicate close agreement between the measured and computed values of deflections.
