Abstract: This paper is concerned with the determination of the funicular shapes of submerged arches. A universal set of curves is generated, from which the shapes of funicular arches under hydrostatic forces may be extracted. The method of extraction of the funicular arch shape depends on the specified design parameters such as the water depth, arch height, and arch span. More importantly, this study shows that depending on the specification of the design parameters, there may not exist any funicular arch solution or there may be occasions in which there could be more than one funicular arch solution for the problem.
