The governing equations of a multi-span Timoshenko curved frame are derived.! The warping inertia and flexural moment of the cross-section of the curved beam are included. An analytic method is presented to calculate the modal frequencies and their corresponding sets of mode shape functions for the entire curved frame. Further, the orthogonality of two sets of mode shape functions corresponding to any two distinct modal frequencies of the entire curved frame is derived. The basic characteristics of strain energy per unit length of the curved frame due to a moving load are investigated.
