The curved elements, TYPE 'SCURV' and 'PCURV', will produce incorrect results for tangential member loads (FORCE X). An example of the loading command which will produce this problem is shown below:

     LOADING 1


     1 FORCE X UNIFORM W -10 where member (element) 1 is a 'SCURV' or 'PCURV' element.


Do not use the curved elements with FORCE X MEMBER LOADS. Break the curved element into straight members. Use enough straight members to accurately approximate the curved geometry.
