Document Type: Journal Paper


A computer program is described that determines the plastic conditions of two-hinged circular arches. The input data are span, rise, and loads. The geometry, reactions, shears, thrusts, and bending moments for the plastic conditions are output. The iteration procedure described can be easily used for many modifications.
