About

The catenary arch is seen as the theoretically optimal structure of an arch.
Catenary comes from the latin catena, which means chain. The catenary curve is the curve that a hanging chain assumes under its own weight when supported only at its two ends. It is usually attributed to Thomas Jefferson who was an architect and the third President of the United States.
Most famous examples are the flattened catenary in the Gateway Arch in St.Louis as well as many appearances in Antonio Gaudi's work.
