 Abstract
Arches are constrained with rotational resistance at both edges. An energy method is used to derive variational formulation which is used to prove the existence of equilibrium states of elastic circular arches for the torsional spring constants ${\rho}-\;{\geq}\;0,\;{\rho}+\;{\geq}\;0,\;and\;{\rho}-\;+\;{\rho}+\;>\;0$. The boundary conditions are searched using the existence of minimum potential energy.
