Curvature calculations

Hello
I am using version 5.2.0.0.
Is there some function that calculates curvature in Mathematica?
For example, there is a function called ArcLengthFactor illustrated in
the
help files as:

<< Calculus`VectorAnalysis`
helix = {Cos[t], Sin[t], t}
ArcLengthFactor[param, t, Cartesian] //Simplify

The ArcLengthFactor gives the length of the curve, so it makes me
think
that there may be other functions that calculate quantities such as
curvature.
Thanks!
Sachin
