A Direct Non-linear Analysis of an Elastic Circular Arch

The non-linear behaviour of circular arches can be found using the finite element method. The computer time using this method is usually long, especially if smaller elements are chosen to increase the accuracy of results. This paper describes an exact mathematical derivation for the actual of such arches. M. N. El-Atrouzy
