I just want to make sure my thinking and free body is correct before I go further in a project I am working on; for some strange reason (probably the curved path) I am doubting myself.

I will try and explain the problem but the attached image is probably the best description.

There is a beam that is pinned at A on one end and free to move along a path of constant curvature (a circle) at the other end; There is a force of tension FT that acts on the beam at an angle θ with a coefficient of friction of μs. Neglect gravity.
