The values of the critical concentrated load, at which hinged-hinged circular arches begin to sway sideward from the symmetrical configuration at large deflections, are calculated by means of the exact theory of the inextensional elastica for initially circular rods of constant cross section. The calculations employ elliptic integrals of the first and second kind. The results are compared with available approximate and empirical values.
