## Özet

This paper deals with the exact solution of the differential equations for the out-of-plane behavior of an arch with varying curvature and cross section. The differential equations include the shear deformation effect. The cross section of the arch is doubly symmetric. Due to the double symmetry, in-plane and out-of-plane behavior will be uncoupled. However, a coupling of the out-of-plane bending and the torsional response will exist and will be discussed in this study. The governing differential equations of planar arches loaded perpendicular to their plane are solved exactly by using the initial value method. The analytical expressions of the fundamental matrix can be obtained for some cases. It is also possible to use these analytical expressions in order to obtain the displacements and the stress resultants for an arch with any loading and boundary conditions. The examples given in the literature are solved and the results are compared. The analytical expressions of the results are given for some examples.
