Curved beam, as clear from the name itself, includes any structural member like arches, chain links, etc. which must have a significant amount of curvature in the plane of loading. In short, we can say that a Curve beam is a beam that is covered by circular arcs in every direction.
The curved beam can be further divided into two parts:
The type of the beam can be distinguished by calculating the ratio of the initial radius of curvature to the depth of the section. If the ratio is greater than 10 then it fits in a beam with small initial curvature and if the ratio is less than 10 then it comes under a beam with large initial curvature category.
