Circular curved beams are often of interest to mechanical and structural engineers. The stress and strain scenario in these beams are difficult to obtain using straightforward approach. The deflection is compound i.e. it has both vertical and horizontal components. The theoretical mathematical model for determining the deflections is usually based on Castigliano’s theoerem. This paper summarizes the results of an experiment carried out to compare experimental results with theoretical ones. Three curved circular beams were used....
