Abstract

Plane elasticity solutions using stress functions for stresses and displacements in orthotropic curved beams subjected to end moment and force loadings are presented.,applications to curved beams,with straight pol?ions and full rings are considered. The results are compared with the isotropic case. Two parameters, which essentially measure the degree of anisotropy each pertaining to a different loading state are defined and their effects on the stress and displacement distributions are discussed It has been shown that increasing these parameters reduced the stresses in the members.
