## Abstract

Numerical simulation techniques play a vital role in science and engineering. The DQ method has got several advantages over other numerical methods. The numerical simulation technique called differential quadrature method (DQM) [1] is used in basic engineering applications. Generalized differential quadrature (GDQ) method is a type of differential quadrature method which is quite often used. In this chapter, the importance of GDQ method in the analysis of vibration problems is discussed. A general discussion on types of DQ method and their implementation is also given.
