Your beam is very thin in the plane of the arc, but thick in the radial direction. That means when you apply a force in the -X direction, the beam will buckle. Buckling is a difficult behavior to capture in a Static Structural model. It is very difficult to capture when the load is a force and it is much easier to capture when the load is a displacement.
If you change the profile of your beam so it is thick in the plane of the arc and thin in the radial direction, then the part will not buckle and you may find it much easier to converge.
