Abstract

The development of the differential quadrature element method (DQEM) in-plane deflection analysis model of arbitrarily curved beam structures was carried out. The DQEM uses the extended differential quadrature to discretize the differential equation defined on each element, the transition conditions defined on the interelement boundary of two adjacent elements, and the boundary conditions of the beam. Numerical results obtained from solving two structural models using a numerical algorithm are presented. The convergence of the developed DQEM analysis model is efficient.
