The development of differential quadrature element method (DQEM) free vibration analysis model of non-prismatic beams resting on elastic foundations was carried out. The DQEM uses the extended differential quadrature (EDQ) to discretize the differential eigenvalue 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. They prove that the DQEM is efficient. The developed numerical algorithm can be used to analyze the related pressure vessel and piping structures.
