Abstract

The development of differential quadrature element method (DQEM) out-of-plane deflection analysis model of curved non-prismatic beam structures considering the effect of shear deformation was carried out. The DQEM uses the differential quadrature (DQ) to discretize the governing differential 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.
