In this paper, the elastic stress and strain fields in curved beams of finite thickness with end moments are systematically investigated using 3D finite element analysis. For a curved beam of finite thickness, the through-thickness distributions of the stress and strain concentration factors are not uniform and their distributions are different. The radius of curvature and the thickness of the beam have significant effect on the stress and stain concentrations. The relations of the maximum value and the value at the corner root of surface of the stress and strain concentration factors with different thickness for various radius of curvature are respectively obtained.
