The development of differential quadrature element method in-plane deflection analysis model of arbitrarily curved nonprismatic beam structures was carried out. The DQEM uses the extended differential quadrature to discretize the differential eigen-value equation defined on each element, the transition conditions defined on the inter-element boundary of two adjacent elements and the boundary conditions of the beam. Numerical results solved by the developed numerical algorithm are presented. The convergence of the developed DQEM analysis model is efficient.
