The force of gravity is smaller than the force of thermal expansion, so when there is a delta Temperature betweeen the bottom and top surfaces, the arm will curve up.
If you set analysis time to 1200s, is that where there is a very small delta Temperature? If you set analysis time to 1s, is that where there is a very large delta Temperature? That would explain the difference in curvature.
