I have a curved two-span continuous concrete beam. How do I determine the torsion on the beam from the uniform loading? I have seen other engineers take the total weight carried by the beam and multiply that by the straight line versus curved offset. Is this accurate? It seems like there should be a simple equation for calculating this torsion value.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
